Detroit People Mover

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. The 2.9 mile system provides connections between the courts and administrative offices of several levels of government, sports arenas, exhibition centers, major hotels, and commercial, banking and retail districts. Service is frequent, unencumbered by vehicle or pedestrian traffic. The integration of eight of the thirteen People Mover stations into pre-existing structures links over nine million square feet that can be traversed unimpeded by outside elements. Normal weekday operating hours are 6:30am to Midnight, with an extension to 2am on Friday. Weekend hours are 9am to 2am on Saturday and noon to Midnight on Sunday. 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.
