An STM spokesperson tells MTL Blog that the gas leak was caused by an issue related to a construction site outside the STM.
Emergency responders are currently on-site and evaluating the situation.

Shuttle bus service for those affected by the shutdown has been set up between Angrignon and Berri-UQAM.
With service expected to resume at 2 p.m., those who are planning to take the green line should plan ahead and figure out another way to get to their destination.
You can also take the orange line to get downtown if that's an option for you.
