CBP Launches Border Wait Time App

 

Last week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) launched a free Border Wait Time app that makes it easier for travelers to plan their trip across the border. Among its features, the app provides estimated wait times and open lane statuses at land ports of entry. This allows travelers to make better-informed decisions of the time and place they should cross the border.
