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.

It looks like quite a few people were relying on the metro to get them to work on time early this morning.

Le #STM nous fait vraiment une interruption sur les 3 lignes ce matin!? J’aimerai qu’on justifie mon tarif de 138$ mensuel svp— Emilie Paquette (@PaquetteEmilie) January 9, 2019
Je comprends, comme je comprends aussi qu’on devrait se faire rembourser une partie du frais de la pass d’autobus pour tous les retards que vous causez.— Roelf Gutierrez Vega (@VegaRoelf) January 9, 2019
The Montreal Metro is a joke, absolute joke #stm amateur hour paid for by our taxes— Lina A (@Muffster1971) January 9, 2019
In case you weren't in any of the effected stations this morning and were curious how bad the backups were, just take a look at the chaotic scene that unfolded during the shutdown:
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— Ligne Orange (@stm_Orange) January 9, 2019
Or maybe not.
Meanwhile we have a platform filled with people, and even if we wanted to get outside, it's so packed nobody can move.— Sabrina P (@StpArt) January 9, 2019
Stay tuned for more angry tweets from Montrealers that are totally done with the STM.
