911 in Mexico

Source: Mexico News Daily | Saturday, November 14, 2015

A emergency? 911 will be the number to call; one single number for all emergency calls was announced last November by President Enrique Peña Nieto as one of a series of measures in response to the Iguala-Ayotzinapa events of September 26 and 27. At the time it was to be 911. But last April the federal Chamber of Deputies approved legislation to make 066 the official number.

Now with using 911 as the Mexico's emergency number; the existing emergency numbers will be required to migrate to it.

Source: Baja Blund - July 2016’s one-of-a-kind mobile app gives travelers what no other source can – reliable, up-to-the-minute, comprehensive video coverage of the San Ysidro and Otay Mesa ports of entry that lets them easily choose when and where to cross and which lane to use to save the most time. To help travelers less familiar with the crossings, video analytics are used to generate exclusive AccuWait time estimates in hours/minutes.

Over 300,000 people per month trust as the only accurate source of 24/7 information about Tijuana’s two crossings. When they began clamoring for an app, company president, Greg Yova, determined to do things differently: “I get frustrated with apps that seem like they’re made to show off how clever the designers are rather than actually doing what the user needs. So we asked our site users to help create our app. Through multiple surveys, they told us what they want and then helped us refine it.”

The result is a robust app with simpler navigation to higher quality videos and more views. Useful features have been added like Time My Crossing and My Favorite Videos which allows travelers to compare two different crossing options in mere seconds. My Alerts automatically contacts users when their preprogrammed criteria is met, e.g., “Notify me when the San Ysidro Ready Lane wait is less than 15 minutes.”
