An alternative to driving yourself between the Twin Sault’s is the International Bridge Bus! Sit back and enjoy the view as you travel the 2.8 mile International Bridge! The bus picks up and drops off at specific locations on both sides of the border. Listed below you will find hours, rate, and locations. Proper paperwork is required to cross the International Border.
Customs officials will ask where you live and your citizenship as well as how long you have been in Canada, and if you have made any purchases or are bringing anything back with you. If you are bringing items back that you purchased, be sure to tell them and show your receipts.
If you have been in Canada for less than 48 hours, even if it was just for an hour or two, you are entitled to bring back $200 (U.S.) worth of goods, duty free. If your goods total more than the $200 maximum you will pay duty on everything, not just on the overage amount.
Keep your receipts! If you have been away for more than 48 hours, you are allowed to bring back $400 worth of goods duty free. Items such as alcohol and tobacco must be in an amount that can be considered either for personal use or as a gift. They cannot be against the law in the state to which you are returning. Be advised that customs officials have every right to search your person. If it is found that you have knowingly or unwittingly exceeded the duty free amount based on your length of stay; you will be required to pay it on the spot. Cash, checks drawn on U.S. banks, and money orders or traveler’s checks are accepted. Money orders and traveler’s checks must be in denominations that do not exceed $50 over the duty owed.
Please be advised that the Bridge Bus will not operate on holidays, during traffic delays, and inclement weather. It is subject to border crossing delays. In the case of a delay over 20 minutes, the bus will resume on the next hourly scheduled run.
