Free and Secure Trade (FAST) lanes are designed for carriers of commercial goods and provides dedicated border crossing lanes and expedited clearance to truckers at the U.S. border with Canada and Mexico. The FAST card is a “trusted traveler” card similar to NEXUS. We list all of the FAST lane locations below.
FAST members reported saving an average of 27 minutes when entering the United States and 18 minutes when entering Canada.
The card may be used in either a FAST lane or other land border crossings. However, the card cannot be used to enter the US in a Sentri or NEXUS lane. To use a FAST lane all persons in a vehicle must possess a valid FAST Commercial Driver card and the vehicle must be transporting eligible goods.
