Abstract

The tourism industry is gradually recovering in the post-epidemic era, but the impact of the epidemic on tourists' choice of connection modes in transportation hubs remains to be studied. Based on the field investigation during the "May Day" period of 2022 at the railway passenger transport hub of Chengdu East Railway Station, this paper analyzed the characteristics and influencing factors of the transportation connection modes selection for tourists, so as to support the improvement of railway hub transportation services for short-term tourists in the post-epidemic era. We first obtained data on 1,062 passengers through a questionnaire survey, of which 236 were for tourism purposes, and then used statistical software to analyze. According to the data of these 236 tourists (including 137 departing passengers and 99 arriving passengers) we found: First, tourists were mainly young and low-income people, generally within three people and carrying a small amount of luggage, whose destinations or starting points were mainly in the central urban area.
