The number of motorists in Western New York and Southern Ontario enrolled in NEXUS, a program that allows speedy transit across the international highway crossings between Canada and the Niagara Frontier in the United States, has increased by nearly a quarter in the last year.

NEXUS Niagara is a public awareness effort by the Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority, Niagara Falls Bridge Commission, and customs and border agencies in the United States and Canada to encourage travelers to enroll in NEXUS.

The group announced that NEXUS enrollments increased by 23 percent in the last year and that motorists used designated NEXUS lanes on local bridges on 200,000 more trips in the last year than in previous years.
