A Bridge!

Even though it was raining when we crossed into Canada the wait was not too long. Not so good upon our return to the States. Stay out of the RV line if possible!

Expect long lines depending on the time of day. Have your passports ready and take your sun glasses off when talking to the border patrol. Toll is $3.00.

We timed it perfect before rush hour & only had a couple cars ahead of us.. Fabulous personalities of the custom officers.. made the 3 under 6... More

Border guards are efficient, and the lines move as well as could be expected. But all the gates seem to merge into one line after clearing passport check. Hopefully after the construction is complete this will improve. Drivers, be aware.

Came across from Buffalo mid afternoon on a Friday. Got in an auto lane that changed from auto, to closed, to Nexus only, all within less than 5 minutes. This crossing has lots of lanes, however, the border staff was moving cones around so often, you could easily get slotted in the wrong lane. Canadian customs were ball busters with... More

Bridge is managed by incompetence at most levels. Witnessed travelers abandoned by PBA after accidents in cars and on foot. As long as they get their toll! Poor snow removal in winter means danger for all bridge users.

When you cross the Peace Bridge into Canada, you need substantial ID now. Many years ago you just needed a driver's license and that you were a US citizen. Now you need a passport. If you are brining a child, that is not yours, you will need a letter from the parents stating that the child is in your care... More

Went over during the day. Nothing particularly spectcular. Crossing area from Cnada to US was busy but organized and quicker than I thought it would be. Suggest driiving along the river and stopping at the memorial area and park on the Canadian side before heading over the bridge itself,

I travel this bridge many times daily as a Fort Erie Taxi driver. I have noticed this year the wait times have improved a lot. There is still work to be done.

This was my first time across the Peace Bridge...heading back into the US. When we first approached it, there was a LONG line in both lanes...trucks and car lane. We decided we would go somewhere and have some lunch and hopefully the line would be gone. :) We were correct in our guess and by the time we got out... More
