I didn't go across the Peace Bridge this weekend, but got to be a tourist from a little downriver, so I was able to look out and observe and photograph its span. This is not really much of a "sight" for a tourist. It's simply more of just a bridge for getting to and from Canada. I wouldn't recommend a... More

What can you say about the bridge itself, simply a simple bridge to get you across the border. We crossed over to Canada on a Saturday evening, no line, no waiting. The lady in the booth had no sense of humor. Asked why we were coming into Canada, told her just on vacation "goofing off" for a few days. She... More

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.

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,
