This paper examines the relationship between transport, tourism and the experiences of those travelling for touristic purposes. For over 20 years, it has been acknowledged that transport serves a dual role in tourism, providing access to and around destinations, and as a tourist activity in its own right. This conceptual paper presents a typology of transport-tourist experiences. It draws upon various fields of research including transport, the tourist experience. The proposed modeling methodology is based on the principle of object oriented, which allows describing both software and functionalities explicitly. Special attention should be paid to the correctness of the models that are used at all planning levels and hence Unified Modeling Language(UML) takes its impeccable role.
