Both the Transportation Security Agency (TSA) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) provide information on wait times at airports and border crossings.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) wants to keep travelers safe when flying. Security screening must be thorough and sometimes these detailed checks cause lines. TSA provides data online to check airport security wait times through the TSA mobile My TSA application.

The Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has estimated wait times for border crossings between Canada and the U.S., Mexico and the U.S. and other land borders. The wait times are updated hourly and listed for commercial vehicles, passenger vehicles and pedestrians. Travelers crossing land boarders can download the Border Wait Time application to access wait times.
