Three dedicated NEXUS eGate lanes are now available to NEXUS members at the Ambassador Bridge.

NEXUS eGate technology allows border services officers to remotely process Canada-bound NEXUS members from inside a CBSA port of entry office through the use of radio-frequency identification, closed-circuit television, and Voice over Internet Protocol.

With the new NEXUS eGate lanes at Ambassador Bridge, NEXUS members crossing the border will experience extended hours of service of over 20 additional hours of service per week.

“NEXUS eGate lanes allow the Canada Border Services Agency to improve service delivery for Trusted Travellers by extending the hours of operation and using technology to efficiently screen low-risk travellers. I want to thank the Canadian Transit Company for supporting the addition of NEXUS eGate technology at the Ambassador Bridge,” said Christine Durocher, A/Regional Director General, Southern Ontario Region, Canada Border Services Agency

NEXUS eGate has been successfully operating at the Peace Bridge port of entry in Fort Erie since 2014, where it was first established as a pilot-project.
