Findings: The implementation of the assumed goal requires verification of the methodology of conducting the research's discussed scope. Contemporary market conditions require a departure from fragmentary research towards a comprehensive assessment of the issues raised. In such a research model, the results of empirical research and interviews with representatives conducting a given activity and scientific authorities are of particular importance. Practical Implications: The reliability and universality of research become an absolute requirement of the moment and a decisive attribute of the effectiveness level of analyses and assessments. The research methodology presented in the study, due to its universality, can be used in the study of the discussed relationship in each region, relating to any entity of transport activity. Originality/Value: The presented research methodology on the issues raised enables comprehensive research, both based on theoretical and pragmatic assumptions.
