Cobo Center station is a Detroit People Mover station in Downtown Detroit, Michigan. It is located inside Cobo Center (hence the name) on the third floor near Congress Street. Originally the track was built through open air and then enclosed as part of the late 1980s expansion of Cobo. Thus, this station was the last on the line to open as part of the original construction.
