Montrealers Are Furiously Tweeting About The Major STM Shutdown This Morning

Montrealers work day began with an unexpected surprise this morning as the STM tweeted that three metro lines were just shut down. The disruption began around 8:15 this morning with complete halt of service on the orange, green and yellow lines.

TL;DR Below are angry tweets written by Montrealers who are outraged by the sudden STM shutdown this morning on orange, green and yellow lines.

Other than knowing the situation involves emergency medical services, we're all pretty much in dark on what's really going on. Regardless of not knowing all the facts, that hasn't stopped angry Montrealers taking to Twitter to voice their outrage over the terrible commuting experience.

Needless to say, it's going to be a while before the STM gains Montrealers trust back.

Every fucking day there’s something #stm

Luckily, service has just resumed on all of the lines, so hopefully Montrealers won't be too late for their Wednesday morning plans.

Service gradually resuming on the ORANGE line. #stminfo A

Meanwhile we have a platform filled with people, and even if we wanted to get outside, it's so packed nobody can move.
