This is quite simply the perfect way to get your bearings around downtown Detroit! Essentially it's an overhead, two-carriage loop! 13 stops in about 13 minutes. 75c buys you a token for one journey clockwise (me and the D actually did the loop twice 'cause the views are great). Our closest stop was over the way from our base at... More

It was a great way to ride around the city for .75. We stayed at the Marriott downtown, & could access it very easily to get around the major stops downtown. Really worth it for us.

Quick way to get certain placed downtown. This need to be expanded to go outside of downtown to get rid of some of the traffic.

It was fairly easy for us to use because we stayed at the Ren Cen and the people mover stops there. You see the sights as you get around town. I had my mom and in-laws - Please be careful if you are at all disabled because some stops ONLY have stairs to get down

And I do mean around. The People Mover makes a one way circle through the Renaissance Center area, to the Joe Louis arena and Cobo Center, back up to the baseball and football stadiums, then to Greektown for great food and then back to the Riverwalk area. Whole ride takes less than 15 minutes. Each ride is $.75. You can... More

We took the people mover around downtown and found it very clean, comfortable and convenient. Hope they can find the funds to expand the route!

For a mere $.75, you can go all around Detroit and see the sites. Perfect for us while staying at the Westin Book Cadillac. The people mover took us directly to Greektown and dropped us off inside the casino. Perfect! It does close down around 12am so our return trip was via taxi. we also visited the Renaissance Center via... More

A great way to see the downtown area if time is limited.I rode around twice for a dollar.To visit the riverwalk,one can leave the train at three different stops(best was Financial Center) and see many people having fun by the water which had a beautiful aqua color the day of my visit.Since many Tigers fans use this to get to...
