Good things come to those who wait, and the wait has been long. The Detroit People Mover has officially resumed service as of Friday after being closed since March 2020.

It’s for real this time. Officials planned for the 2.9-mile loop to start again in April, but that never happened, so here we are. The rides, which normally cost 75 cents, will be free for the first 90 days of service. Officials also said in April that rides would be free for 120 days, but all is well. We are happy to see him return.

For now, People Mover will have limited service, with stops at Greektown, Michigan Avenue, Huntington Place, the West Riverfront, Millender Center and Grand Circus Park.

Fort-Cass, Financial District, Renaissance Center, Bricktown, Broadway, Cadillac and Times Square stations are temporarily closed but will reopen after construction is complete, officials told The Detroit News.

Hours of operation have also changed from 7 am to 7 pm Monday through Friday and 10 am to 10 pm on Saturday. There is no service on Sunday.
