Faster timeline for phasing out DOT-111 tank cars
from Government of Canada
In 2015, more than 146,000 carloads of crude oil were shipped throughout Canada by rail. To protect Canadians and those who live along our rail corridors, it is important that this be done as safely as possible. The Honourable Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport, issued Protective Direction 38, which accelerates the phasing out of DOT-111 tank cars for crude oil service to November 1, 2016. The accelerated timeline will phase out unjacketed legacy DOT-111 tank cars six months early and legacy jacketed DOT-111 cars 16 months early.
