Whether you are going to a Lions or Tigers game, park at the RenCen (GM World HQs) and take the PeopleMover. For 75 cents each way you can beat it.

The Detroit People Mover is quite inexpensive and makes a loop around the city. It takes only about 10 minutes to make the loop. At only 75 cents it was fun seeing the city from a few floors up.

After a great Renaissance Center tour, we boarded the People Mover to get a feel for downtown Detroit. It was a cold and windy mid-October day and we wanted to walk around as little as possible. For only .75 per person we got up-close and personal with quite a few sections of the center city. The elevated viewpoint was great...we... More

Only 75 cents per person! 3) the people mover will take you... More

I imagine this was more about me being more informed but coming home from a concert and a Tigers game all the doors to the people mover were locked. We tried different spots but they were always locked. Maybe you can only get on from certain points so they keep the train moving. There are also a lot of homeless... More

For 75 cents you can train around some popular areas in Detroit. We got on at Greektown and rode a full loop. Got off at the river walk to check out things down there. It was safe and reliable.

For only 75cents you can get close to anything in the city. It was easy to get on and off and if you want you can take the entre loop and check out places to go and eat. Getting on at Greektown was a bit difficult you had to walk through the casino and there were no signs directing you... More

This is a fun and cheap (75 cents) way to get your bearings in the riverfront section of Detroit It also allows you to park once and visit several parts of the city. Great facility and very easy to use. The ticket dispenser accepts dollar bills and gives you a token and your change, drop the token in the stall... More

This is a great way to tour Detroit. At only 0.75 a person it really is. The trains are almost always never packed or full, and it is a great transportation system in metro Detroit.
