Detroit People Mover modifies station access for
Sunday’s Detroit Free Press/Talmer Bank Marathon
DETROIT, Mich. (10/10/2016) // The Detroit Transportation Corporation (DTC) will begin Detroit People Mover service at 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, October 16, to accommodate participants and spectators of the 2016 Detroit Free Press/Talmer Bank Marathon.
The closest People Mover stations to the start-finish line are Fort/Cass and Cobo Center. To assist with marathoner arrivals, Fort/Cass as well as Michigan Station will remain open until 7:00 a.m., then close from 7:01 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to mitigate foot traffic away from the race course and street closures. Trains will by-pass these stations; patrons may exit at Cobo Center or Times Square to reach the finish line and the Conquered afterparty.
DPM trains will make standard stops at all remaining stations, resuming full loop service from 2:00 p.m. until midnight.
The Detroit People Mover was constructed in 1987 as part of a planned, regional transportation system. Via support of major public events, travel/tourism, employment and development, the People Mover provides an ongoing benefit to downtown Detroit’s economy.
Fare is 75 cents per ride. Any combination of U.S. nickels, dimes and quarters or one DPM token may be used for entry. Tokens are available in all DPM stations. Children, ages five and under ride free.
