Knowing land border wait times at the various ports of entry into the United States from both Canada and Mexico can aid the traveler in making an informed decision on when and where to cross the border. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Border Wait Time (BWT) app provides estimated wait times and open lane status 24/7 at ports of entry that process commercial vehicles, passenger vehicles, and pedestrians. The BWT app breaks down wait times at each crossing by lane type (Standard, Sentri, FAST, Ready Lane, Nexus, etc.). The BWT app is a free service provided by the Department of Homeland Security/U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

CBP is the worse at keeping this updated


CBP as always are just lazy they are terrible at updating this app and when you ask them about it when crossing they show little to no consideration. I cross the border everyday and have just not relied on this app anymore CBP really needs to get their crap together or not have this app at all! Is it really that hard to input the information for all crossers to have an easier commute?

Inaccurate wait times


App seems simple and easy to use. The Data doesn’t seem accurate. The app shows the same data as the CBP’s websites. All afternoon, the wait was advertised as 110 minutes in standard lane. We, and many others along side us, spent just over 4 hours in line. Need to consider GIGO - “Garbage In, Garbage Out”

Not sure where wait times come from. Posted wait time at Tecate noted as 40 minutes when we got in line. Changed to 55 minutes then 90 minutes. We have just passed two hours and look to be at least 30 minutes out.
