All available N11 codes are now in use in the United States, either by FCC assignment or by what the FCC calls "traditional usage":211 Community Information and Referral Services 311 Non-Emergency Police and Other Governmental Services 411 Local Directory Assistance 511 Traffic and Transportation Information (US); Available for Reassignment (Canada) 611 Repair Service 711 Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS) 811 Access to One Call Services to Protect Pipeline and Utilities from Excavation Damage (US); Available for Reassignment (Canada) 911 Emergency Source: © 2003 NeuStar, Inc.
