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

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

For now, the People Mover will have limited service, stopping at Greektown, Michigan Avenue, Huntington Place, 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 once construction is complete, officials told the Detroit News.

Hours of operation have also increased to 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday. There is no service on Sunday.
