Based on pressure-state-response (PSR) analysis theory framework, the article establishes a concept model to analyze mechanism of transportation response in tourism development. In it, firstly the conception of “the coefficient of tourism traffic intensity of the response” was brought in, secondly the Zhangjiajie transportation response model driven by tourism was set up, and finally the path was put forward that the regional tourism development puts a certain pressure on the development of transportation, and the transportation construction must respond to tourism development by increasing investment mechanism and cater to tourism development. Thus, tourism and transportation form a coordinated development of the relationship. Using the relevant regional statistical data from 1998 to 2011, we analyze the regional tourism traffic intensity of response through the model and response measure. The study finds that the coefficient of this regional tourism traffic response, on the whole, shows a rising trend from 1998 to 2011, which means that the coupling degree of tourism system and transportation system in this area shows an increasing trend, and the impact of tourism development on traffic construction investment are enhancing through the establishment of mechanism analysis model. This article further explores the influence of regional tourism traffic intensity of response mechanism, and the result is that this upward trend is influenced by four main factors including the regional economic development level, traffic construction foundation, the spatial structure of tourism resource development, and tourism industry status. Given that, the four ones, which work together, generate the response mechanism for the development of tourism.

Key words: tourism to drive, tourism transportation, responding model, response mechanism, Zhangjiajie
