Nice choice for transportation in downtown Detroit. Only goes one direction though. The fate is 75 cents. Very safe with a high police presence. Clean as well.

The People Mover covers a small area and travels in a circle going in only one direction. The cost is 75 cents per trip. The Detroit People Mover is a convenient way to move around the Detroit area. There are stops at Cobo Hall, Greektown, Joe Louis Arena, and the Renaissance Center, among others. I always feel safe riding the... More

This free tram takes you around the center part of downtown. Lots of good sightseeing and even from close to the casinos to the riverfront area.

My husband and I stayed at the Crowne Plaza over Thanksgiving and we used the People Mover constantly. I would not recommend using it if you are by yourself (being a woman that is) felt fine with my husband. Sometimes there are a few shady people on it, but for traveling purposes it is great for the local area. Has... More

Great way to get around Detroit. We took the people mover mover to get from Greektown casino to Cobo Arena. Ride is only 75 cents one way. Ride is comfortable and offers views of the city.

After dinner, grabbed the train to the Joe. Fast, cheap and safe way to maneuver around Detroit with no hassles. Put is out just feet from destination.

Recently took the People Mover again when staying at the Detroit aloft hotel, close to Comerica Park. This is one of the best (and cheapest) ways to see all the facets of downtown, even when the weather isn't cooperating. We also went to the Autoshow and were able to walk out the lobby of the hotel and enter Cobo without... More

What a great way to get around a busy city. We parked our car at the hotel and used the PM for everything. A nominal 75 cents gets you around the heart of Detroit.

For .75 cents, you can ride the People Mover, which reminded me of the monorail at Disneyland. It goes around the city and you can take it around as many times as you like for your .75 cents. We took it at sunset and the views were spectacular. It provides views of the city as well as the bridge to... More
