Second Chance At Ribbon Cutting

And you blew by that one, too. It was last week

Last December the Cross Border Xpress (CBX) opened, allowing travelers to park safely, get their tickets, check their baggage, and then walk across the cozy bridge from the United States to the Tijuana airport in Mexico, and get on the plane. Badda bing, badda bang.

Last week they had a big hoopty doo ribbon cutting attended by big shots in government and the developers of the pretty cool facility.  

CBX is a partnership between the private and public sector. It serves to modernize the border, and simplifies customs clearance for ticketed airline passengers

The official inauguration took place in the middle of the bridge, at the demarcation of the border between the two countries, featuring a ribbon cutting, followed by a press conference and speeches.

Ribbon cutters and speechers included the Mexican secretary of foreign affairs, the secretary of transportation, the secretary of tourism, and the U.S. Customs and border honcho. Even Susan Davis, the U.S. house of representatives delegate from the 53rd district horned in on the publicity.

So. Now it’s official. Use it. But only if you’re flying, and most of our precious readers drive across the border.
