U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced on Wednesday the implementation of a pilot radio broadcast system for the Port of San Luis, aimed at better informing travelers with border crossing information.
The local 530 AM broadcast station will include reminders of document requirements and how to use high-tech travel cards, information about CBP’s Trusted Traveler Programs and basic border crossing rules and regulations.
The system also will allow port officials to transmit emergency travel information or updates to the local community within a one- to two-mile radius.
While in its pilot phase, CBP will monitor the effectiveness of this new tool. The follow-up analysis of the system will help determine if further system installations and messaging are needed.
