In this paper, a Binary Logit model has been developed to evaluate the prospect of waterway in Sylhet city. Data has been collected from the commuters of Tuker Bazar to Bandar Bazar route. Stated Preference (SP) survey method was used and in hypothetical scenarios, river boat with different level of service in terms of boat size, security system, travel time, travel cost etc. was presented to the commuters keeping roadway same as now. Model output shows that travel cost, travel time, boat frequency, comfort, safety, boat capacity and stoppage number control the choice of waterway as well as respondents socio-economic characteristics have great influence on their travel route choice. The developed models provide useful insights and helpful for the policy makers that can lead to minimize traffic congestion by motiving people to waterway.
