Crossing an International Border

ALERT: WHIRLPOOL BRIDGE WILL BE CLOSED IN BOTH DIRECTIONS APRIL 1st TO MAY 5th!

Is the NFBC the same as Customs and Immigration?
No. The Niagara Falls Bridge Commission is entirely separate from Customs and Immigration agencies on both sides of the border.
The NFBC's responsibility is to collect your toll.
If traffic is heavy around toll and/or Customs booths, NFBC staff members might direct vehicles toward shorter lanes to reduce congestion.
Customs and Immigration authorities may ask you questions about your national origin, purpose of travel and other personal data.

The Niagara Falls Bridge Commission

Niagara Falls' reputation as a natural world wonder and honeymoon capital of the planet beckons visitors from around the globe. 

But it is the bridges that actually bring most of them here. 

No other single factor contributes more to tourism growth - indeed the export trade economy overall - than the NFBC's three monumental linkages of concrete and steel. Niagara Falls crossings rank second only to Kennedy International as the busiest port of entry between the U.S. and Canada. If you are about to travel over Niagara's gorge, your vehicle will take one of about 7.2 million passages expected this year on NFBC bridges.
