We would consider Nexus but usually always land crossing and our Nexus lanes are open only two hours weekday mornings to US and two hours afternoons coming back.
They seem to be steadily increasing hours of operation etc. I get updates about expanded hours etc. and here, near a major city, they've even added extra lanes.
Also, even at the regular booth, handing over a Nexus card seems to result in a quick "have a nice day".
