Convention Center station is a Detroit People Mover station in Downtown Detroit, Michigan. It is located inside TCF Center, formerly known as Cobo Center, 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.

Convention 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. Ten other stations have escalators going up only and one other (Joe Louis Arena) has none.
