Grand Circus Park is a public transit station in Downtown Detroit, Michigan that services both Detroit People Mover and the future M-1 Rail Line.[2] The station takes its name from the adjacent Grand Circus Park.

Detroit People Mover[edit]

The station occupies the first two floors of a structure attached to the historic David Whitney Building. It is located at the intersection of Park Street and Woodward Avenue near Washington Boulevard, in the Grand Circus Park Historic District.[2] Accessible by stairway only after the David Whitney Building closed in 1999, the station underwent a major renovation between August 2014 and June 2015 to make it ADA-compliant, to coincide with the reopening of the David Whitney as an Aloft hotel and apartments.[3]


The station will have a transfer to the QLINE light rail outside along Woodward Ave. The QLINE station will be heated and feature security cameras and emergency phones. Passenger amenities will include Wi-Fi and arrival signs.[4] The QLINE portion of the Grand Circus Park Station is sponsored by General Motors' Chevrolet brand.[5]
