About
The Detroit People Mover (DPM) is a fully automated light rail system that operates on an elevated single-track loop in Detroit's central business district. Launched in 1987, the system’s 13 stations provide quick connections between the courts and administrative offices of several levels of government, sports arenas, exhibition centers, major hotels, and commercial, banking and retail districts. Service is frequent and unencumbered by vehicle or pedestrian traffic, and at just 75 cents per ride, it’s the best bargain in town!

Thank you so much for asking! While we have been closed due to COVID-19, activities and events are picking up in downtown Detroit. We are currently conducting vehicle testing and hope to serve our regular riders this summer.

The Detroit Mover
Dec. 2019
Its wonderful! The people mover is a great way to get around, I have used it many times,usually get on from Greektown CasinoIt runs M-S, but the hrs are different,Fri & Sat -@am, so if you are staying out late may sure leave before 1.45., otherwise Mon-Thur,Sun until 12am..The cost is .75 or 1 DPM token, kids under 5 free. Each stop is annouched, so you won't miss your stop.Strollers & wheelchairs are allowd, I believe there are 13 stops.

Cheap and easy mode of transportation
Feb. 2020 • Family
Listen, this thing is just like a Subway, it's not real pretty, but it gets you where you need to be. It takes 15 minutes to ride the thing around the whole circle and it costs $.75/ride per person. You don't have to wait long for another train to come, I don't think I ever waited more than 5 minutes. The only thing that could be improved is cleanliness. Just bring some hand sanitizer and don't touch the poles LoL.

$0.75 cent complete city tour! Awesome!
Feb. 2020 • Friends
Came to Detroit on a very cold day and decided to use the people mover rather than walk. It only cost $0.75 to use and the complete tour around the city only takes about 20 minutes! It makes quite a few stops so make sure you grab a free little information booklet that shows you all the stops it makes. People movers come around about every 20 minutes.

It does the job, and a nice view of the city
Jul. 2019
This tiny 3-ish mike track runs in a circle around downtown, and can get you close to all of the major sports arenas and Greektown, no matter where you park in that loop. I used to amuse my twins when they were younger just doing a couple of loops around the track before settling in for lunch in Greektwon. It’s a tiny fee to get on, and you can circle as many times as you want after you’re on!

But remember it is useful too! And now there are beautiful trolleys too! Helps people get around. But we always take visitors down for a ride on the People Mover and lunch in Greektown!

What a pleasure
Feb. 2020
This elevated train sure helped get us around in a snow storm. Warm and clean and so fun to see the city from up high. The mosaics in the stations are beautiful too.

Still a good way to get around
Jan. 2020
Although the PM has not been revised to make a loop over to the stadiums, its still a good way to get around. Find a cheap place to park and jump on and ride to your destination - cheaper than Uber and faster than walking.

$0.75 for circle of down town. Runs fairly frequently. Worth a spin and see some people moving on the people mover!
