Montreal's STM Green Metro Line Has Been Shut Down, Here's Why
There is now a shuttle running between Berri and Honoré-Beaugrand
According to the STM service updates website, service on the Green line will be down until 9 AM.
A power failure is the apparent cause, but there are few other details.
TLDR: The entire Green line is down because of an apparent power failure. Service is so far projected to resume at 9 AM. No details on the cause of the power failure.

The STM tweeted the above notice to passengers at 8:29 AM, meaning they anticipate needing half an hour to right the electrical error that caused the power failure.
Given the length of the shutdown, it likely more than just a tripped breaker.

A shuttle will be running between Berri and Honoré-Beaugrand while the Green line is down.
UPDATE: Service is gradually resuming on the Green line, according to the STM.
The service is gradually resuming. The interval between the trains will therefore gradually return to normal.— Ligne Verte (@stm_Verte) April 3, 2019
