The Detroit People Mover (DPM) remains committed to providing public transportation that is quick, efficient and most of all, safe for its patrons, including those among the disabled communities.

The People Mover stations and vehicles also accommodate electric scooters used by patrons with disabilities. We recommend use of the break system equipped on the vehicle, as these types of chairs are not made for our wheelchair securements on each train (manual, unpowered chairs only).  Each securement is inspected by Maintenance and remains functioning and operational. Interior vehicle areas include a retractable seat which draws upward to allow spacing and secure restraint of a wheelchair in each train. Automated announcements before arrival and departure at each station assist all passengers, including the visually-impaired.

Elevators and/or escalators are offered at the People Mover’s 13 stations. DTC will notify patrons via printed station announcements should any of the remaining stations experience upgrades to its elevators or escalators.

 Additional assistance is available by the use of emergency communication systems, which connect directly to the Control Center. Transit Police can dispatched immediately to respond to any incident. Emergency  Phones or”E-Phones”  are located inside DPM trains, at both levels of the stations or inside elevators, and  provide surveillance in combination with visual monitoring. Patrons may also call (313) 963-0171 for Control Center assistance.
