Detroit’s QLine Streetcar Project on Track to Be Carrying Passengers by Next Spring

DETROIT — Detroit’s M-1 Rail streetcar project, named the QLine after Dan Gilbert’s Quicken Loans, is on track to be completed by the end of the year. The 3.3-mile track is over 50 percent complete, and the program expects to be carrying passengers starting sometime next spring. The QLine will contain six streetcars, and the first streetcar is half complete. Brookville Equipment Corp. is building the streetcars, as well as providing spare parts and support services, for $32 million. In May, Turner Construction completed work on the Penske Tech Center, which will house the M-1 Rail administrative staff and serve as the maintenance and operations center for the streetcars. The first streetcar will be delivered to the Penske Tech Center by the end of the year, and testing and safety certification will begin at that time.
