Border Crossing/Entry Data

Metadata Updated: December 7, 2023

The dataset is known as “Border Crossing/Entry Data.” The Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) Border Crossing/Entry Data provides summary statistics to the public for incoming crossings at the U.S.-Canadian and the U.S.-Mexican border at the port level. Data are available for trucks, trains, containers, buses, personal vehicles, passengers, and pedestrians. Data fields are numeric counts and textual sequences. These data are collected by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at individual ports of entry, then compiled and tabulated by staff of CBP's Office of Field Operations. CBP uses a mixture of manual and automated procedures to collect the data. The data reflect the number of vehicles, containers, passengers or pedestrians entering the United States. U.S. Customs and Border Protection does not collect comparable data on outbound crossings.
