what does the future hold for this durable span? actually, this crossing was very confusing, as we had a hard time finding our way into the vital nexus lane and were gently scolded by the customs officer than we could have used any lane... hence, why a nexus-only... you really gotta' time this... we were eating at May Wah beneath...

I find that the Peace Bridge is my least favourite of the three Niagara area bridges. The wait times seem to be always longer here. The tolls are the same I believe on all three bridges. The one advantage of the Peace Bridge is that you do avoid the toll on the I-190 around Grand Island in New York State.... More

The peace bridge has an interesting history. Definitely worth a read. As do most international bridges. I can't believe I'm reviewing a bridge. But whatever. In busy times, it will take you up to 45 minutes to cross into US. But your average will be 5-10 minutes. Going into Canada is most often the quickest, at about 5 minutes or... More

Since I live in Fort Erie and travel to Buffalo a couple times a week, this is my bridge of choice. But even if I had to drive some distance I would choose this bridge. When Niagara Falls and Lewiston/Queenston have hour long waits, I can usually sail through at this crossing in minutes with my Nexus. Like most locals,... More

We crossed the bridge this weekend to enter Canada to go to Niagara Falls - no waiting. The agent was so nice and friendly AND she stamped our passports for us when we asked. I read up on border crossings and most people said that the agents would not want to them the passports. We heard that it lights up... More

We used this bridge when returning from Canada one time. I would rather swim the Niagara river than go through this experience again. We got to the check point and were tired after driving for 12 hours to get to a hotel that did't accept dogs and had to go back to the US to find a pet friendly hotel.... More

This is one of the oldest and most unique bridges in North America! IT connect Fort Erie Ontario with Buffalo New York. It's really cool at night as the bridge lights up with multi-color animated LED lighting that really complements the Niagara River. As of a few years ago, there is now only one toll booth - on the Canadian... More

Crossing the Peace Bridge can be a time consuming venture. Of course it depends on the day of the week, the time of day, and which way you're crossing. We usually find it a pleasant crossing, seeing the lake and the source of the Niagara. We like seeing the flags at the point over the US/Canada border. At night the... More

We use the Peace Bridge to cross from Niagara Falls to Buffalo. We have gone across three times and had the best experience the last time. It seems like at times we waited on the bridge for an hour, but this was during a Saturday around lunchtime. The last time it was a Tuesday around 10 and we sailed across... More

The peace bridge offers great views of Lake Erie the Niagara River and downtown Buffalo. It has a Nexus lane but even with a wait the amazing views will keep you occupied.
