The Detroit People Mover and DDOT to help residents transfer between downtown buses during the fireworks
Three DPM stations also scheduled to close early. DTC Administrative Office closing at 3:00 p.m.
Street closures in preparation for the Ford Fireworks on Monday, June 26 will require changes in layovers for DDOT passengers on several east- and west-bound routes in the downtown area, and the closure of three facilities reduces the number of People Mover stops.
The Detroit People Mover (DPM) will operate from 6:30 a.m. – midnight. Due to early closures, DPM trains will bypass Millender and Renaissance centers beginning at 2 p.m. and Cobo Center starting at 7 p.m. There will be no public access to these People Mover stations. Financial District Station is the closest DPM station within walking distance of Hart Plaza. Patrons may enter or exit at the nearest available station, as the other DPM stations except those named above, will remain open.
DPM welcomes DDOT passengers traveling the following six bus routes which will end at the DPM Bricktown Station between 5:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. on Monday, June 26:
#48 Van Dyke
DDOT passengers can connect to the Rosa Parks Transit Center by boarding the People Mover at Bricktown and exiting at the Times Square Station. The People Mover’s Bricktown Station is located between Congress and Lafayette.
Passengers at the Rosa Parks Transit Center traveling east should board the People Mover at the Times Square Station and exit at the Bricktown Station to board eastbound coaches. DDOT staff will distribute tokens from both Times Square and Bricktown to ride the People Mover.
Passengers must have a DDOT transfer to receive a People Mover token to use for the ride.
The People Mover fare is 75 cents per ride, and children ages five and under ride free. For more information, go online to www.thepeoplemover.com or call (313) 224-2160.
