Montreal commuters will be happy to know that the STM orange line is currently in its longest streak without a major shutdown since the beginning of 2019.\nThe last major shutdown, which we will describe as a service interruption whose scope or duration (usually longer than 10 minutes) warranted an official notice on the Ligne Orange Twitter account, was on April 16th — a full 27 days ago.\nOf course, this record does not account for delays for which the Ligne Orange Twitter account did not publish an alert or service update.\nHello, there was a service slowdown around 11:50 am due to a blocked train door, but there was no service shutdown today. Thank you!— Ligne Orange (@stm_Orange) May 6, 2019\nREAD ALSO: This Insane $40,000,000 Mansion Is The Most Expensive Home For Sale Right Now In Montreal (Photos)\nUne personne blessée ou malade nécessitant une assistance a causé un ralentissement sur la ligne Orange plus tôt ce matin. Bonne journée!— Ligne Orange (@stm_Orange) April 24, 2019\nThis was the last time the Ligne Orange account alerted the public to a service interruption:\nNormal métro service #stminfo A— Ligne Orange (@stm_Orange) April 16, 2019\nThe previous record for longest streak without a major orange line interruption in 2019 occurred between February 25th and March 9th for a total of 12 days.\nIn third place is the period of 10 days without a shutdown between February 4th and 14th.\nThese are only the streaks since January 1st, 2019. Though note that the last orange line interruption before January 4th was on December 12th, 2018 — 23 days apart.\nView this post on Instagram La spectaculaire verrière de Marcelle Ferron à la station Champ-de-Mars fête ses 50 ans! 🎉👏 📷: Louis-Étienne Doré . . . #stminfo #art #artdanslemetro #metrostation #mtlunderground #mtlmetro #stationchampdemars #marcelleferron #artpublic A post shared by STM Mouvement collectif (@stminfo) on Jul 4, 2018 at 1:52pm PDT\nThe orange line is the busiest of the STM metro network. Crossing between Laval, the Plateau Mont-Royal, Berri-UQAM station, and downtown Montreal, it is a critical transit node.\nService interruptions can often be blamed on passenger actions. Crowding may only increase potential for major shutdowns.\nIn an effort to alleviate the burden on the organe line, the STM has introduced a number of measures in the last few months, including more frequent trains during its busiest hours and, just this week, a new bus line that will run along its route between Beaubien and Berri-UQAM stations.\nAs many as 21,500 people enter the Orange line between those stations during peak hours, according to the STM and CBC.\n[#Mouvementorange] 🚇🧡➕ Next September service will also be enhanced on @stm_Orange with the addition of 2 trains during peak periods & 3 additional trains available at strategic locations of the network to adjust the service if necessary! pic.twitter.com/INAiZMSrRt— STM (@stminfo) May 13, 2019\nThe STM is also adding trains during its busiest hours, according to a Twitter post.\nView this post on Instagram AZUR célèbre aussi les 10 milliards d’entrées! ☺️🎉 📷: Louis-Étienne Doré . . . #stminfo #stm #10milliards #merci #métromtl #mtlmoments #metrostation #placedesarts #azur A post shared by STM Mouvement collectif (@stminfo) on Apr 25, 2018 at 1:30pm PDT\nLast fall, the STM ran an ad campaign whose aim was to raise awareness of passenger actions that could result in service delays.\nWe have reached out to the STM for comment on this record and will update this article with a statement when we get one.\nStay tuned.
