The economic vitality of the 'Golden Horseshoe', a
densely populated and industrialized region which
encompasses Southern Ontario, Canada and parts of New
York State including the Buffalo-Niagara Region, is
heavily dependent upon the ability to move goods freely
and efficiently across the Canadian-US border. In recent
years, and as a result of the continued increase in travel
demand across the border coupled with the need for tighter
security and inspection procedures after September 11,
border crossing delay has become a critical problem with
tremendous economic and social costs.
