Times Square station is a Detroit People Mover station in Downtown Detroit, Michigan. It is located on Grand River Avenue between Cass and Washington Boulevard. The station takes its name from nearby Times Square, which in turn, took the name from the defunct Detroit Times newspaper formerly headquartered there. It also serves as headquarters for the People Mover system and houses a maintenance facility.

The DPM's 12 car fleet are stored in an indoor carhouse at Times Square.
