Detroit — Detroit People Mover trains are up and running again Tuesday afternoon as technicians dealt with a “service opening delay.”
The People Mover stations reopened and trains began moving by 1 p.m. Tuesday after a nearly six-hour delay in service.
“A track cable on the guideway affected the automatic train control system at the beginning of the service day, preventing the start of operations Tuesday morning,” read a news release from Detroit Transportation Corporation. “Maintenance worked non-stop to restore and test the section; trains are now communicating successfully and have entered the system.”
