Roll on the QLINE Free This Weekend and Grab Some Swag

Qline Thumb

Detroit will make history again when the QLINE streetcar starts running this weekend along Woodward Avenue. This history-making event deserves to be celebrated in style—which is why we are planning a giant celebration with all four of Detroit’s sports teams, as well as Little Caesars Pizza, MotorCity Casino Hotel, Ilitch Charities and more.

Ride the QLINE free all weekend and don’t forget to make the stop at Montcalm Street to join us at Hockeytown Café for tons of fun activities, beginning at noon on Friday! 98.7 Amp Radio will be reporting live from the patio. Stop by again on Saturday for even more excitement beginning at 10 a.m. as Little Caesars Pizza and the Detroit Tigers, Detroit Red Wings, Detroit Pistons and Detroit Lions give away free swag throughout the day.

For QLINE riders who stop at the Montcalm station, be sure to swing by the patio at Hockeytown Café on Friday and Saturday to grab a swag bag of FREE branded merchandise—all on a first come, first served basis, while supplies last. 

As the QLINE begins service this week, fans will be able to visit sports and entertainment events happening throughout The District Detroit more quickly and easily than ever before—adding an exciting new way to travel up and down Woodward Avenue from downtown to New Center. The QLINE is a major new addition to The District Detroit and adds excitement and accessibility to many other new developments emerging all along Detroit’s “Main Street.”

Four of the line’s 20 stations are sponsored by the Ilitch organization: two at Montcalm Street near the Fox Theatre and two more at Sproat Street adjacent to the new Little Caesars Arena. The QLINE will have riders traveling through The District Detroit on their way to work, sporting events, concerts, shopping and dining everywhere from the Detroit River to the Fisher Building.
