The Detroit People Mover (DPM) is a fully automated light rail system that operates on an elevated single track loop in Detroit's central business district.

Early openings and extensions of evening hours are provided to accommodate sports events, major conventions and other special events taking place in the Central Business District. Round trip on the system is approximately 15 minutes and headway ranges from three to four minutes. Average dwell at each station is 20 seconds. People Mover fare is $.75.
