    Clearing a full bus can take a solid hour. Once you get your blue ticket and while waiting for your bus, you can enjoy the luxury of a lonely vending machine by the exit door.

    WARNING! Be aware you are entering the province, from all the provinces and states in North America, where the taxes are the highest. Enter at your own risk.

    If you're going by bus, make sure you keep your passport and ticket with you! They're going to give you a little blue slip of paper, give it back to the officer when you leave.

    As your current mayor, my tip would be to have lots of patience, good music, and the good fortune to have wifi on ur bus. Bon voyage!! Lol

    Be sure to visit early in the morning because there is hardly any traffic and the wait times are minimal.

    There is a woman that works on the US -> Quebec side who is most gorgeous woman ever. She's one of two woman I would turn straight for. Try to get into her lane!

    If you're lucky, you'll get the border agent who looks like a cross between Jennifer Garner and Anne Hathaway. She has an Oprah-esque ability to get you to answer awkward personal questions.

    Save gas! Going into the US the road has a slight decline so stop the engine and put it into neutral.

    I waited here for 8 hours after being sent back by the Canadian side. The chairs are uncomfortable and there's only power outlets in the bathroom.

    Sunday evenings in the sunny months are a nightmare. The next border in Vermont that leads to Noyan is quieter.

    Never take pictures of the customs agent; they don't like it at all. Ne prenez pas de photos de l'agent car ils peuvent vous avertir de supprimer la photo... Respectons la vie privée...
