Stayed in downtown hotel near Cobo Centre and found this an excellent way of seeing the layout of central Detroit. Did a full circle then picked spots to hop on & off. And just 75c per ride. Very convenient and safe way of going to the baseball at Comerica Park

This is a great way to get around down town. It is quick, easy and plenty of room in the cars. Stations are conveniently located all around town.

Covers only a short distance, but if you don't want to walk and the route includes your destination, it's convenient. At 75 cents it's also a good way to survey the downtown quickly. I would like to see an explanation of how stops were selected and their purpose. The Joe Louis stop, for example was a puzzle.

This "train" is a total waste. It travels in one direction around a few blocks that one can easily walk. It took us almost as long to find an entrance than it took to ride the entire distance. Detroit should have found a better way to use its money.

Have used the People Mover many, many times since its beginning. I am a regular Tiger gamer goer. I know that the P M will get me to the game in quick order. Some of the vehicles are very clean, while others are neat. It is a VERY safe experience.

Going to Detroit with a group for NFL and hockey, we decided to have a quick visit downtown. I'm a photo lover, so after shooting photos outside the baseball and football parks, we decided to walk downtown. It was sathurday and so quiet. We could cross the streets no problem and without traffic. Then we found this metro doing a... More

Where else can you spend 75 cents and ride a train as long as you want. The People Mover is a great way to see Downtown Detroit from above. You can stop at any of the stops and as long as you don't go through the turn styles board again without paying again. Each station is decorated in a different... More

Only problem is the people, if they just threw away their own trash and kept it nice it would be a 5 in my book.

Most of the places that the people mover goes are easy to walk. It runs pretty smoothly and is clean enough. I only ever use it when I have friends in town and they want to take a ride. I do hope that the new 'District' will connect to it though. That would be worth the ride back to the... More

My husband and I couldn't figure out why we didn't see a lot of locals walking from one place to another until we boarded the People mover....there they all were! Easy to access from several points, it goes in a large oval area from neighborhood to neighborhood. Reminds me of the People Mover they have at Disney that moves from... More
