Friday I visited the NAIAS. The closest reasonable parking to the venue I found was at the Greek Town Casino. I had to WALK from there and back in the cold, a serious workout for even a seasoned sportsman! Thanks People Moover!!!

The people mover in downtown Detroit is the best deal for getting around. It's very safe and I've riden with my wife and three kids for years and have never had a problem.

I love the fact I can see the city of Detroit downtown for .75 cents. Its a great way to see all the attractions in Downtown Detroit and to take great photos in the process.

I was a little leary about riding the People Mover but recently used it to get to and from Joe Louis Arena from Greektown. It is easy access, inexpensive, quick and efficient.

This is a 3 mile or so loop that gets you around downtown Detroit very quickly... I think it's about 20 minutes to do a complete loop with 13 stops and about one minute in between and 20 seconds at each stop along the way... The most amazing part is that it only costs $0.75 to take a trip... you... More

If you've never ridden the People Mover it offers a great aerial view of the City of Detroit. Coming around the curve looking out over the Detroit River is fantastic. For transportation, one can usually walk to one's ultimate destination as quickly as using the PM, but in the winter it keeps you warm and dry. Also very useful to... More

The people mover is a great way to give a tour of Detroit to friends from out of town. Each stop has it's own unique charm and artistic decoration. There is a beautiful view of the Detroit River during part of the ride.

Convenient way to get around the major attractions of Detroit. Not sure about the safety of the trains, or the station.
