Cheap way to go in a circle around the city. Nice view of the river. Sometimes you might have a panhandler serenade you on the ride.
I knew there were car parking lots near greektown. Had to get to financial district. Chose to use peoplemover. Trains still work well and come frequenyly. Just missed one train, only had to wait about 3 or 4 minutes for next one. Stations and train were both clean. Whoever the manager is of that system is doing something right.
I was concerned about visiting Detroit, having read about feral dogs running through streets of abandoned buildings. I saw abandoned buildings on the outskirts (but no feral dogs), but the part of the city served by the People Mover is as spruce as a theme park and the People Mover is the monorail ride. The streets were emptier than other... More
Very easy, safe, and fun ride.3 quarters or use the machines and get tokens which is easier. Supposedly there is a way to get passes but they have to be mailed or you have to go to the People mover offices to get them. Supposedly seniors ride for half price but never found a way to get the cheaper tokens... More
Can't say anything too bad about a $0.75 attraction. Thirteen stops take you in a loop around downtown Detroit and you can take a good look at your surroundings through either side of the cars.

This is a great way to get almost everywhere downtown Detroit. It takes you to the three major hotels and all of the sporting venues. It's on a dollar a ride and always seems very safe and efficient.
We use this for hockey games and restaurants. I suggest you not try to use during the Auto Show unless you have no deadlines. It then is overcrowded and often goes just back and forth and not all around as it usually does. Too cold to wait for after a hockey game.
The city calls it the people mover. We were in Detroit for our daughters wedding. On the down time we rode the people mover. For 75 cents this EL type train takes you around the outskirts of Detroit. It stops at about 10 places. But when we rode it on a Thurs afternoon my husband and I were just about... More
If you want to experience and take in the view of downtown, then this is perfect. Its cheap, about 75 cents and you can ride it as long as you want. It takes about 20 minutes to do a loop. We took 2 loops that day because the kids liked seeing it. The people mover is controlled remotely (automated) so... More
