(MAY 19) And…it’s back! Detroit Transportation Corporation (DTC) has announced the restart date for the Detroit People Mover (DPM) as Friday, May 20th. In a modified station lineup, the system will initially have a “soft opening” with six stations; DTC plans to add People Mover stations in the weeks ahead.
With the number of events happening downtown, the People Mover is ready to be enjoyed by Detroiters and visitors by providing free rides for the first 90 days. Two stations are also receiving new names to help riders find their way: the former Joe Louis Arena Station will be known as West Riverfront Station and Convention Center will become Huntington Place Station. The DTC appreciates the passengers who have been invested in the People Mover’s return – their questions and comments have been important considerations as we chart our way forward.

The Centers for Disease Control strongly recommends the use of face masks on public transportation.
