Nobody likes to spend hours in the car because of traffic, and that is a global problem in all the big cities, and the border cities are not the exception due to their great movement of people and cars, especially with the constant remodeling works from the entry point, from the United States to the city of Tijuana, through the border port “El Chaparral”, and the occasional inspection operations implemented by Customs and Border Protection agents, waiting times have begun to increase, it is That is why the authorities of the Department of Transportation in California are now trying to create a pilot program that allows knowing, in real time, the wait to get from San Ysidro to Tijuana. This will help a lot of people that go to this city for medical centers like All on 4 implant clinic Tijuana.
The director of border projects in San Diego explained that the pilot program began two years ago with the acquisition of resources and equipment that would allow the project to start up. It was at the beginning of this 2018 when the publication of the collected information began, through an application, which can be downloaded to the mobile device or be consulted on the official website of the California Department of Transportation.
The pilot is in San Ysidro, from the United States to Mexico. The objective is to cover all the border ports between California and Mexico for which they obtained the acquisition of 32 million dollars destined by the North American government.
They also mention that another important objective is that Mexico, be it with the state government, the private initiative or the federal government, can reach an alliance so that the readers of the Mexican side can be installed; that is to say that the Mexican team can introduce all the technology and process the information so that it is sent to the web, all this in order that people can make informed decisions and thus reduce waiting times.
To date, half a million dollars have been allocated for the implementation of the pilot program. However, they estimate that starting in the next few months, the investment of 32 million dollars will be launched for the acquisition of more readers and the installation of fiber optics that will allow for broadening the collection and processing of information.
They estimate that during June, a meeting was held with authorities of the Ministry of Communications and Transportation, in Mexico City, to resume the project and establish a collaboration between the two jurisdictions.
