CBP proposes collecting passenger manifest data from buses and railroads

  1. Original Date Announced

    August 27, 2020

    CBP issues 30-day notice and request for comments on new policy that would expand collection of passenger information (currently collected from international flights and commercial vessels) to buses and railroads. The information collected includes name, identifying document numbers, arrival location, country of citizenship, etc. CBP is currently running a pilot with nine respondents in which bus carriers are submitting passenger manifest data voluntarily to assist CBP in the development of the Land Pre-Arrival System (LPAS) application CBP is proposing to revise its information collection to include bus and rail respondents which would allow CBP to expand the bus pilot beyond the current nine respondents, as well as make the LPAS application available to pilot for rail carriers in the future.
