Over half the STM green line has been shut down due to a medical emergency. Emergency services are on the scene, though it's unclear at which station the intervention has taken place. The STM shared the service update via the green line Twitter account at 16:11. Service is not expected to resume until 18:00. The hour-long shutdown will impact afternoon commutes.
The shutdown extends from the western terminus of Angrignon to Berri-UQAM, the intersection of the green, orange, and yellow lines and one of the busiest stations in the STM network.
UPDATE: as of 17:24, service is gradually resuming on the green line.
