U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) this week launched the Border Wait Time app, which makes it easier for travelers to plan trips across the U.S. border. The Border Wait Time app offers estimated wait times and open lane status at land ports of entry, allowing travelers to make decisions regarding where and when to cross the border.
Wait times for pedestrian and passenger and commercial vehicle crossings are broken down by lane type (standard, SENTRI, NEXUS, FAST, Ready Lane, etc.). Travelers can download the app for free from Apple’s App Store and Google Play.
“CBP continues to deploy technology that enhances the travel experience at all of our ports of entry,” said Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske. “The launch of this app will provide travelers crossing the land border with more information when and where they need it.”
