DPM Fare Is Now $.75

Detroit People Mover Changes Fare to $.75

                                                                                               

DETROIT, Mich. (10/31/2011) // The Detroit Transportation Corporation implemented a planned fare change for the Detroit People Mover (DPM) to $.75 on Monday, November 7, 2011.

 

The $.25 increase follows 2011 public hearings, and comments which were supportive of the People Moverís first-ever hike on the individual fare.  

 

Senior residents of Detroit, Hamtramck and Highland Park will now pay $10 for a 2012 pass; in prior years, there was no charge. Discounts for seniors and disabled patrons have been adjusted by 10 cents from a quarter to $.35 (available through a special half-fare token).  Fare remains free for children ages five and under.

 

Patrons will now receive change from DPM token machines as well.  Denominations of $1, $5 or $10 will distribute a combination of tokens and quarters.  Older tokens will still be accepted however, any tokens purchased after November 7 will be charged based upon the new fare.  Station fare gates will also continue to accept U.S. coins (quarters, dimes and nickels) as well as the People Mover pass.

 

Prices for both the monthly and annual DPM passes are unaffected, at $10 for a monthly and $100 for an annual, respectively.  These are available for use on the People Mover only and are not stored value.  

 

The Detroit People Mover is owned and operated by The Detroit Transportation Corporation.  For more information, please visit www.thepeoplemover.com, or call (313) 224-2160 during regular business hours.
