MONTREAL -- Large sections of Montreal's metro system were shut down Monday afternoon.
The closure was due to an unauthorized person on the tracks, the STM tweeted.
The Green and Orange lines were shut down from Lionel-Groulx to Henri-Bourassa and the Yellow line was shut down between Berri-UQAM and Longueuil.
Service began to gradually resume at 2 p.m.
