Cepeda: Border Bridge Wait Times data has to be more accurate
...
Hidalgo Mayor Martin Cepeda is interviewed by reporters at the 2014 Border Texan of the Year news conference, held at the BBVA Compass Bank Tower in McAllen last Tuesday.
HIDALGO, February 7 - Hidalgo Mayor Martin Cepeda is hoping new public-private partnerships designed to improve efficiencies at border bridges will help reduce the wait time for pedestrians and motorists crossing into the U.S.
Cepeda said it is not uncommon for tourists and business men and women to spend three or four hours on the Hidalgo-Reynosa International Bridge. He also disputed Border Bridge Wait Times given to local media by Customs and Border Protection.
"We have our neighbors from Mexico coming over here to buy, to spend their money. A lot of them come from Monterrey and the southern part of Mexico. It takes them four or five hours to get to the bridge and then they get there and they have to sit another three to four hours," Cepeda told the Guardian.
...
"I am hoping that the new law allows us to open a lot more lanes through the hiring of more CPB inspectors," Cepeda said.
...
Asked if it is really true that pedestrians and motorists can sometimes wait three to four hours on the Hidalgo-Reynosa International Bridge, Cepeda answered affirmatively.
...
Cepeda said he would like to see a more scientific method used to calculate how long visitors are kept waiting on international bridges. At the moment it is a guestimate obtained through line of sight by CBP officers.
Cepeda said he is "really hopeful" the new public-private partnership legislation will lead to more lanes opening at Hidalgo and more lanes built at the Anzalduas-Reynosa International Bridge.
Details about the public-private partnership legislation were unveiled by Valley leaders at a news conference at Anzalduas recently. Among those who spoke at the conference were U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, Mayor Cepeda, McAllen Mayor Jim Darling, Mission Mayor Beto Salinas, McAllen Bridge Superintendent Rigo Villarreal, Border Trade Alliance Chairman Jesse Hereford, and Border Trade Alliance board member and Starr-Camargo Bridge owner Sam Vale.
