Detroit's new QLINE streetcar system late last week opened for passenger service.

M-1 Rail, which built the system, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony and opened the system for riders on May 12 after a ceremonial trip with local officials, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Rides on the streetcar were free throughout the weekend. QLINE announced on Twitter yesterday that free service will continue through the week.

The 3.3-mile streetcar route runs along Detroit's Woodward Avenue between Congress Street and Grand Boulevard. Passenger can connect to the Detroit People Mover system at the Grand Circus stop.
