The Joe Lewis Arena Station is the people mover station designed to handle the most crowds. The single platform even has two separate banks of turnstiles at each end of the platform (the only people mover station with this set up). One set leads to a staircase and the other a wide ramp and elevator (that goes all the way down to street level). The wide concrete orange ramp that feels like it could be in any older stadium or arena and leads to a central mezzanine area just beneath the platform where the ramp only (no faster stairs) leads with two switchbacks down to street level along the west side of Steve Yzerman Drive. The central mezzanine also has a direct overpass to the Joe Lewis Arena home to the NHL's Detroit Red Wings across Steve Yzerman Drive, a ramp to two parking garages and two strange looking high turnstiles that lead to the Riverfront Apartments, with tenants only signs.
