TLDR: Sections of the Green, Orange, and Yellow lines are down because of an intervention by emergency services. Service is so far projected to resume at 1:45 PM.

The Green line is down between Lionel-Groulx and Pie-IX.

The Orange line is down between Bonaventure and Beaubien.

The entire Yellow line is not operational.

Given the extent of the shutdown, the intervention by emergency services is probably at Berri-UQAM.
