Abstract: Tourism involves the movement of people. As a consequence, the relationship between transportation and tourism is a very important aspect of tourism studies. In most cases, tourism has developed in those areas where extensivetransportation networks are available.Transportation may be defined as the means to reach the destination and also the means of movement at the destination.Tourism demand has stimulated the rapid development of transportation. As bulks of tourism expect to be transported safely, quickly and comfortably to their destinations at a reasonable cost.This paper attempts to examine the organisational analysis and entrepreneurial aspects of some select transport agencies operating within the city of Imphal. The key importance of the study is the assessment of the existing deficiencies in the transport agencies undertaken in the study and to suggest measures so that supply meets the potential demand.
