 PEOPLE MOVER

Detroit People Mover © Xuan ZhangThe Detroit People Mover is a one-direction elevated ring line in downtown Detroit. It is similar to the downtown metromover in Miami and opened on 31 July 1987. One round trip takes 15 minutes (4.7 km - 13 stations) and trains run every 2-3 minutes. Stations are fully accessible to the handicapped and include artistic elements. Several stations are integrated into buildings. The people mover is operated by Detroit Transportation Corporation and now runs clockwise.
