Since I live in Fort Erie, I travel across this bridge a lot -- usually twice a week. There are three bridges crossing the border here. Niagara falls is the most famous, of course because it has ....well ..... Niagara Falls!!! Its more expensive and usually the wait time is longer. Lewiston is to the north of Niagara Falls and...

what a comical old queen this bridge is, appropriately, as we believe her highness had a hand in opening it... change plans have been on the drawing board for centuries, it seems, and three lanes (that's for two directions) just really aren't enough, but it's a worthy old span and the entry process is being improved regularly, while we wait...

This is the worst border crossing anywhere in the world in terms of waits. Spent an hour in the winter snow waiting to cross.

I use the Peace Bridge at least five times a year (usually return trips), mainly to get to Buffalo-Niagara International Airport and it is my crossing of choice between the available crossings in the area. I don't bother with the Queenston-Lewiston Bridge, as crossing times there are typically double those on the Peace Bridge (partly due to truck traffic, but... More

We took the QEW because we were heading to Cleveland, not back to Albany. If you are not stopping at the duty free shops, the signage is fine, if you are like us, we found very confusing. Getting out of the parking lot was fine, but a tractor trailer had to get right in front of us making it extremely... More

Leaving a slightly re-vitalized city of Buffalo, we turned to cross the Peace Bridge. The sign said to have your toll change ready. It was three dollars. The other sign said that the border crossing checking point wait was 0-30 minutes. Naturally I assumed that it would be zero. Wrong. We waited an half an hour as a few million... More

Very slow traffic movement. American Customs agents extremely rude. It took us amost an hour to cross back into the US and very few lanes were opened, even with the high volume of traffic.

It was ok but misleading on where to visit it and how not to have to cross it into Canada without going through customs because there is not a parking area that I could find

This is a very beautiful structure, but it was horribly congested when we crossed into the United States deom Canada on Sunday, February 17th. The US side was terribly disorganized; two lanes were suddenly closed down and individuals in the line already had to fight traffic to then get into open lanes. We waited over two hours that evening. Meanwhile,... More

even though I have not been across the bridge I see it often. The lights are a beautiful feature that helps improve the waterway and Buffalo.
