Detroit is a massive city. It covers over 139 square miles, but only two of these count as the downtown. This makes our rarely enjoyed, super cheap and mostly useless People Mover a great way to learn about the rich history of Detroit.
The People Mover is a driverless, fully-automated, rapid transit system that travels a 2.9-mile, one-way loop through the heart of the city. The total round trip journey is only 14 minutes long – so let's be honest, you’re not going that far. But the ride will only cost you 75 cents a person.
There are 13 stations on the loop. If something at one of them catches your fancy, feel free to hop off and explore the area, and then get back on the People Mover when you’re ready. If you leave this audio tour running while you explore, it'll pick back up when you board the People Mover again, or you can end the tour and then restart it, selecting the Resume button instead of Start when you do.
