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.

UPDATE: The STM has sent out this tweet for passengers:

[Temporary bus service] Temporary bus service is being deployed between Berri-UQAM and Honoré-Beaugrand. You can find the bus stop localization on the neighbourhood map displayed in all Metro Stations.

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.
