About M-1 RAIL


M-1 RAIL is the non-profit entity that owns and operates the QLINE, a 6.6-mile circulating streetcar route serving 12 locations on Woodward Avenue from Downtown Detroit through Midtown, New Center, and the North End. QLINE opened to the public in May 2017 and served over 3.3 million riders in its first three years of service.

The QLINE suspended service on Sunday, March 29, 2020, due to COVID-19 and its impact on transit demand along the Woodward Corridor. Service is expected to resume in late summer 2021.
