Cobo Center station is a Detroit People Mover station in Downtown Detroit, Michigan. It is located inside Cobo Center (hence the name) on the third floor near Congress Street. Originally the track was built through open air and then enclosed as part of the late 1980s expansion of Cobo. Thus, this station was the last on the line to open as part of the original construction.

Cobo Center is one of only two stations (with Millender Center being the other) on the People Mover route where passengers can take escalators down from the platform to street level. Nine other stations have escalators going up only and two others (Grand Circus Park and Joe Louis Arena) have none.
