Mr. Border provides the most up-to-date border wait times for the USA/Canada and USA/Mexico border crossings by combining both official wait times and real-time wait time information reported by actual border-crossing travellers.
See what the current gas prices are across the border! Gas prices are crowd-sourced, so make sure you report the latest prices when you fill up so you can help others.
Stay on the right side of the law by calculating how long you may be in the USA before you become unlawfully present or accidentally satisfy the IRS Substantial Presence Test.
Plan your shopping trip with the offline shopping directory! Download the shopping directory and you can view all the outlet and shopping malls in your area, including mall hours, list of stores, and offline maps - even when you are roaming without a data connection!
* Note: the offline directory and offline maps are currently only available for the Pacific Northwest region (Vancouver, Victoria, Seattle, and Portland). More regions will come in the future.
Use the handy price converter and see how much you are saving! You can also convert gas prices between US dollars per gallon and Canadian dollars (or Mexican pesos) per litre.
Check what you are allowed to bring back home with you after your travels with the handy Duty Free Allowance information page.

Border Buddy has grown up! He now goes by the name Mr. Border.
Don't worry- only the name has changed. The App still contains all the same border-crossing features that you're used to.
And we've been busy working on a few new features as well, so stay tuned to the next few updates!
Ratings and Reviews
Always use it
I find this app very valuable for time management when crossing the border. The ease of access to border cameras helps to validate the estimated time shown. The Nexus information for peace arch crossing just need to be updated to reflect the new hours that changed in December 2018.
Hasn’t been updated in years. Camera pics are the same images for days. Doesn’t work anymore.
Don’t bother. Not accurate
This app isn’t reliable.
Wanted to go to the states and this app tells me it’s a 15min wait time, however, when I get to the border I reluctantly waited 2hrs (I had no choice as I had to go). Very disappointed at this unreliability.
