We are going to the first game of the playoffs and was wondering what is the best way to get to and from the joe from our hotel. We are staying about 10 miles out of detroit, so we we wondering about the best way to do it. Shuttles i know are from the hockeytown cafe which we wanted to go their to eat so thats an option or taxi it the whole time. Also, i heard about the detroit people mover but not really sure how that works so if someone could help fill me in on this that would be great GO WINGS!!!!!!!

Think of the People Mover as an above-ground subway. Half a buck, and it'll take you anywhere on the line you want to go. There's a stop not far from Hockeytown Cafe, and one at the Joe.

Now for some advice that will actually help you. The people mover is Colman Young's collasal failure. It is a good option to use if you want to get from Greektown to the game, but I don't know any of the logistics of parking at the casino as I've been out of the area for about 10 years. It is very limited where it will take you to/from.

There is plenty of parking with safe access in and around the Joe. Most park at Cobo Hall's parking garage, but there are a handful of lots available. I would consider taking some time before the game to drive around as it can be confusing with the riverside drive/cobo/the rencen and Jefferson. Get lost when your not stressed about getting into your seats on time.

You can easily take I 75 or 94 down to the lodge freeway. If you take 75-375 down to Jefferson, it will be really confusing. The lodge will "dump" you right out where you need to be.

If you want to eat/park/shuttle from Hockey town cafe, you can take 75 to Mack, hang a left on 75 and Hockeytown cafe will be on your right about 1 mile or so. you can't miss it.

Have fun and

GO WINGS!!!!!!!!!
