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 estimate...
It’s great for seeing what the shortest wait time is. Brownsville TX has four bridges. The latest update only allows you to see vehicle wait times. If you want to see pedestrian wait times you have to change the settings. It should allow you to see both passenger and pedestrian wait times so you can decide if you want to drive or walk across into the US.
Very Helpful and Accurate
I just downloaded and used this application for the first time. We’re always concerned about how long the wait is at the border when we return home to the United States. After I opened the application I found it very easy to navigate. It’s really simple and the wait times very accurate. CBP updates the wait times hourly. Thanks CBP!
Update every 30 minutes
I like the app with going across but I would love it if they updated the wait time every 30 minutes. Sometimes there is no delay like 30 minutes after the hourly update but people don’t know because why would we leave the house to waste gas and see how long the line is instead of waiting till the next hour only to have it get bigger or smaller.
Wait Time Accuracy
Hello All, this is a good app to use when traveling back and forth from Mexico monthly like we do. Lukeville border. The wait time is not accurate as others have stated. I’ve tracked the wait time for the past six months and it’s triple. If you see a wait time of 15 minutes, it will be 45, etc. this is very accurate information coming from a frequent travel.
The update to this otherwise absolutely efficient and reliable app turned out to be another example of inefficient government at its best. Navigation used to be simple, you would add your favorites, and you could see both passenger and pedestrian port crossings at a glance. With the new app, you have to switch from the settings from passenger to pedestrian, quite the hassle. As of August 22, 2019, it works fine on iPhone 8 but it crashes continuously for iPhone 7. Way to go!
not even close to accurate times
this app is useless they show 50 minutes waiting line, So I trust it got to the border line with my family and we were there for 3 and half hours from 10pm to 1:30am as we were waiting I was checking the app and every hr was updating showing 49 min to 50 min waiting line. do not trust this app at all it was a nightmare specially when you are siting down for more than 3 hrs with young kids and they need to go to the restroom
Selecting a crossing will flash the screen of wait times then CRASH. in Tijuana, 0.5 mi from San Ysidro crossing, using “Nearest” function brings up Tecate as #1, am inabulity to get any info beyond high level view, and in case of San Ysidro, only shows east pedestrian crossing with no option to get west. Can get more selecting from whole list but then CRASH. typing into search the keyboard obscures. Part of info presented. Prior versions were at least usable. 2.0.0 is not.
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?
Crashes when selecting port of entry
The newest update deleted all of my favorites (no big deal), but the biggest issue is the app crashing when you select a port of entry to see further details. The app is still usable if all you need to see are the wait times while scrolling through the list of ports.
It’s perfect I use it all the time
It works great it’s always accurate and really easy to use and gives you different options
Useless - Misleading information
Most of times, the estimate crossing times are wrong. Right now, with a recent update, the app says “60 mins”... I have been in line for 90 mins and I estimate at least one more hour to go. Also, I went to a bridge that was supposed to have a 10 mins line; but the bridge as closed!! Not worth to have this app taking your phone’s memory space.
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”
Inaccurate wait times
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.
Have used this app the last few times I’ve crossed the US/Mex borders in Mexicali, Tecate and Tijuana and it has been fairly accurate on the wait times.
App works great 99.1 % of the time. One time it did not update wait times. Very accurate. New update please.
