All 13 stations are open this year, with the closest to the parade being Grand Circus Park, Broadway and Cadillac. View the DPM system map at


As a result of street closures for the Thanksgiving Day events, DDOT customers can expect delays beginning at 6 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 26. Eastside bus routes will lay over at the Detroit People Mover’s Bricktown Station on Beaubien north of Larned. Bus passengers are encouraged to ride the DPM at no charge on Thanksgiving Day to continue their travels. Eastside bus routes will resume regular service to the Rosa Parks Transit Center after 6 p.m.

The following routes will be affected because of the Thanksgiving Day Parade:

#7 Cadillac-Harper #10 Chene

#25 Jefferson

#31 Mack
#34 Gratiot #48 Van Dyke

The following routes will be affected because of the Turkey Trot, which takes place from 7 a.m.- 8:30 a.m. These routes will come in and out of town by Michigan via Trumbull:

#19 Fort

#27 Joy

#29 Linwood

Bus passengers that need to get to the eastside routes from the Rosa Parks Transit Center may ride the People Mover to the Bricktown Station.

DDOT will operate a Sunday schedule on Thanksgiving Day for all regular routes at regular fares. DDOT’s Administrative Offices will be closed Thursday, Nov. 26 and Friday, Nov. 27 in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.
