The Detroit People Mover hasn’t been in operation since March 30, 2020.

Thankfully, Detroiters are getting the good news that the People Mover finally has a scheduled reopen date.

According to interim general manager Garry Bulluck of the Detroit Transportation Corporation, the Detroit People Mover’s reopening is tentatively set for Sept. 3, WXYZ reports.

“We expect a period where system users will slowly return,” Bulluck said, according to WXYZ. “In anticipation of rebuilding ridership, the Detroit People Mover will actively support downtown residents, local entertainment venues, convention activities and employment centers during this period of regrowth.

When it opens, the Detroit People Mover will offer free fares for 30 days. They will also have limited service hours.

The Detroit People Mover originally shut down service due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
