Water transportation is the transportation of people and goods using water modes as a means of connecting one location to another. There are three canals in the center of Makassar City with a total length of 15.11 km. These canals function as an urban drainage and also as a main base for flood control. This canal has become one of the potentials that can be used to unravel road-based movements while at the same time solving the congestion problems that occur in Makassar City by utilizing it as an urban transportation medium both as a travel for daily needs (formal) and recreational activities (non-formal). This research was conducted to see how the demand preferences of canal-based transportation modes, variables that affect the willingness to use channels as a transportation medium, and the extent to which the role of channels becomes an alternative transportation medium. This study uses a descriptive quantitative method approach to achieve these objectives using the method of crosstab analysis, multinomial logistic regression and approaches with stated preference methods. Based on the results of the analysis, there are four variables that significantly affect respondents' willingness to use canal / waterway based transportation services, namely income per month, travel time, reasons for choosing modes, and tariff tolerance. In the stated preference analysis, the results show that the operation of the waterway transportation will cause the shift of road-based mode users to travel, where the increase is 31.10% for scenario 1 and 37.26% for scenario 2.
