Starting today, May 18, the NEXUS-only lane at the Pacific Highway border crossing will be open extended hours.

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials have announced the NEXUS lane into the U.S. at the Pacific Highway crossing, also known as the truck route, will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m, seven days a week. The lane was previously open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

NEXUS membership, which is valid for five years, is designed for low-risk, pre-approved travelers who frequent the U.S./Canadian border crossings. The NEXUS application fee is $50, and there is no fee for applicants younger than 18.
