The QLINE: What to see and where to visit near each stop

All aboard!

View as Map

Note: This map was originally published in May 2017 and has been updated with the most recent information.

The QLINE, after years of discussion and anticipation, is finally open for service. It runs 3.3 miles down Woodward and back. Since it’s been in the works, it has spurred a lot of development in its path. It should make it easier for many who live nearby to get to and from downtown and Midtown.

It’s also along the path of many major landmarks, museums, and buildings in Detroit. If you don’t live along its path and you want to spend the day sightseeing, or if you’re visiting the city, there are many places to stop along the way.

Will it become so successful that they’ll continue it down Woodward into the suburbs? We hope so. Until then, here are a few places you can visit right now. Did we forget something? Let us know in the comments or drop us a note on the tip line.

Check the M-1 Rail website for more information on riding. We can answer some of your questions here. Also, this guide details businesses and restaurants along the way. Enjoy!
