Hate this horrible bridge!! Customs officers are usually jerks and are in their high horse. Not to mention the wait times are so ridiculous be chase they never have enough booths open. Gotta love it... Not.

This is our first experience crossing since requiring passports From the States to Canada was so easy......3 vehicles in line ahead of us, where do you live, where are you going, why are you going, are you declaring anything, have a nice day. Coming back to States was crazy.........hundreds of cars, minimum 10 cars each line, more questions and check... More

We have crossed over the Peace Bridge at least 10 times in the last year. Six of those crossings were in March and April 2015. I found the wait time minimal, the Guards were polite and asked the basic questions both going into the USA and returning to Canada. I have no issues waiting, answering more questions or what ever...

Bridge was very cool. I get that it's a monotonous job being a border guard. But the Canadian guard was just plain cold and nasty. She wanted to see my car registration and insurance ID. I said the ID is on my cellphone, then slowly reached for my phone. She practically jumped out of her cage and pulled her gun.... More

Border crossing didn't take long, Which was nice! Asked us the usual questions, and everything went smooth, took about 15 mins to get across! The duty free at this bridge has the best selection of liquor of all the three bridge over to New York!

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
