Detroit People Mover reopens after derailment

UPDATE: The People Mover was reopened at about 3:30 p.m. Friday. FOX 2's Ingrid Kelley will have more on the story at 5 p.m.

The Detroit People Mover has halted rides once more Friday morning after derailing at Grand River and Times Square Thursday night.

The mover reopened after the derailment Friday morning around 8 a.m., but we're told the vehicles are now temporarily closed again for inspection. The mover is expected to reopen later on Friday. 

Police say it hit a platform Thursday night while about 20 people were aboard. No injuries were reported.

Authorities at the mover say until service is fully restored, DDOT buses are providing free shuttle service from each People Mover station.

People Mover service will be free at all stations upon the reopening and restart of the system; no fare will be charged today
