Border Crossing Delay Notification System for Citizens

Collaborate with the DOT and state and local agencies to develop a single, real-time border delay notification system. The system should connect with a mobile application that enables citizens to identify the approximate delay times for both personal and business travel at all major border crossings. The system also should send out text messages to subscribers who can pre-register date/time ranges for travel. In event of an ongoing delay (or expected delay) during the registered period, the system would send a mobile text message or a tweet to the citizen notifying them of the delay and, where appropriate, proposing an alternate crossing.
