The BorderTraffic app helps you save time with near real-time videos of the San Ysidro (San Diego) / Tijuana and the Otay Mesa / Tijuana border crossings, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Simply by using this app, you can make informed border crossing decisions based on current video information, thus saving time, money, and frustration.

• Videos of the San Ysidro & Otay Mesa crossings – Standard, Ready, Sentri, Entering Mexico, & Pedestrian Lanes
• AccuWait time estimates generated using analytics of videos
• My Alerts notify you when the wait time meets criteria you’ve set. For example, you may set an alert to notify you when the wait in the San Ysidro Ready Lane is less than 20 minutes.
• My Favorite Videos lets you save 2 different videos. With one click, you’ll see video of your preferred crossing and lane. If it shows a long wait, click just once more to see a video of your 2nd choice, letting you compare the 2 videos and make a quick decision.
• Time My Crossing lets you automatically calculate and store your wait times every time you cross

This app has been accurate most of last year 2017 however, most of this year has been incorrect. For example, right now ( or 20mins ago) the app said it was a 25min wait in the ready lane. When i get to the boarder (15mins eta) the line looks to be 1 hour from my experience. I look at the app and it says 12mins! I just checked again, same thing and theres no way this line would be that short. Cmon boarder traffic app team whats going on? Im considering about trying other apps or just listening to the radio.

We apologize for any data you found inaccurate. We are constantly working to improve our service but Accuwait will never be 100% perfect as there are many factors that change the times quickly. We actually recommend that you rely on our videos more than AccuWait- your eyes looking at our videos will give you more information in two seconds than any artificial intelligence could ever do.

Great app-Use the cameras

I live in Tijuana but cross the border 3-5 times a week. I have a Global Entry Card and use the Sentri Lanes. My house is pretty much equidistant from San Ysidro and Otay.
On days I need to cross, I check the app before leaving home. Usually Otay has the lower crossing wait time. However, Otay wait time only goes to 19 minutes plus. It can be longer.
The golden part of this app is the cameras. Let’s face it, wait time has a lot of variables. For instance, how many gates are open at any point in time. CBP will flex to open up to 4 Sentri lanes at Otay, or may only be using one. Then there is the question of how many cars are coming in at what rate. Add to that your drive time to the border and what can change. And lastly, what is time between app’s estimated wait time refresh. Cameras give me a better feel for wait time.
By the way, the cameras help me know which is better route to use to get there. I have two main routes to Otay. But if TJ police shut down the left turn from Belles Artes, then you need to go further East to make a uturn. My other route avoids that. Camera 3 shows the intersection.
I LOVE this app. CBP app is useless.

Must pay with a credit card or pay pal... lousy!

They want people to subscribe but you can’t do it using the Appstore. They want you to pay with either a credit/debit card or PayPal. Makes me wonder why? May be they want more personal information about people to sell it and share it. I would had subscribed if I could had subscribed through Apple like you can with other apps. Another very dumb thing, if you buy an anual subscription a friend gets a subscription free. Well, I have no friends who care for the app since they don’t cross the border. A better option to offer would be to get two years for the price of one. Is the same as giving someone a free year. Something else that is very dumb, is the "Time My Crossing" feature. That is only for subscribers. I don't know who came up with that, but is as dumb as dumb comes. Simply because the more people track their crossing times, the more accurate their reported time will be for everyone, including the paying customers. As for any other function, I can’t commend since I can’t use them because everything requires a subscription. I can say that their app looks cheaply made. The graphics and everything else are very poor in quality and menus not too well thought out. Good idea but poor execution.

Greetings! Thank you for the feedback about the ability to pay with AppStore and promotions. We will keep those in mind! We do offer a variety of payment options- credit card, debit, Paypal, and cash. The app is far from cheaply made- tens of thousands of people love/benefit from it! Adding to your update, we offer the promotion for a friend to use the app to share the app with others. We see what you mean about Time My Crossing and will see what we can do to make that available in the free app.
