We were in town to see a couple ball games and were staying at the Crowne Plaza by the river. As the weather was bad on Saturday night we took the people mover to Comerica park. We got on at the Financial District stop ( less than a minute walk from the hotel) and got off across a small park... More

The People Mover is a clean fast and efficient way to get around downtown Detroit. The whole Loop takes about 15 minutes and you get on and off for only $0.75 a trip. There are also weekly and monthly tickets available. The People Mover runs until midnight and possibly later on the weekends. Leave your car at the hotel and... More

This is Detroit's answer to mass transit. While it does not quite do the job it is great for special occasions. A Tigers game, event at COBO, it allows you to park cheap and away from the traffic. It's great when an event is over, you can quickly get out of the city without sitting in traffic

It was my first time to Detroit and I was staying downtown. It is a roughly circular loop that has stops near all the downtown attractions. The DPM, as they often call it, is a great way to get around the downtown area. Now to be fair it doesn't cover much area and I can walk across the longest diameter... More

I've never really liked the people mover. Not very smooth or clean. It does serve its purpose, moves people short distances that you sure do mot want to walk at night.

Mover is great to get you around attractions. What I did not like was the dangerous amount of people waiting and taking this mover after an event at the Joe. People were Herding through the walkway to the mover.. I will never take it after an event again. It is "Hillsborough"all over again. This needs to be monitored. I'm glad... More

A waste of money! It stopped every few blocks, are people in Detroit this lazy? Is not expensive, $.75 each trip. We did feel safe on it.

Doesn't take long to do the loop, easy to figure out where to go- has maps with lists of places to stop at each stop. 75 cents per ride is a good price. Makes it easy to get around. Has entertaining mind quiz to pass the time.

This is just for downtown Detroit and a very small area of the city. You can't get lost and it goes around a few square blocks of the city.

We stayed at The Crown Plaza and the 'People Mover' was close by. It was very easy to use as long as you had .75 cents. Unfortunately, the escalators were not working, but we needed the exercise because we ate such great food while we stayed in town. The 'People Mover' was close to all attractions and was quite safe.
