Parking is $15-$20. Pay with credit card. If you park away from Cobo you may need to pay in cash to an attendant so it’s always good to have a few $5 bills with you in case they don’t have change.

Detroit International Auto Show In-The-Know Tips
- Tickets are $14/each. $7 for 65 or older.
- Utilize the Detroit People Mover right from the Auto Show (Cobo) to get to Greektown, the Renaissance hotel and more! It’s only 75 cents per person each direction! There is a machine for tokens right next to the entrance to the People Mover.
- We recommend showing up EARLY as the show is packed by noon. There is already a line at 9:00 a.m. but you will enjoy the show more without the insane crowds by 2:00 p.m.
- There are lots of restrooms at the show.
- Coat check is available for around $4 per coat…have cash.
- Right next to the coat check is a shop that has breakfast, drinks and lunch items.
- Lots of places to purchase water, snacks and drinks inside the autoshow.
- Plan to spend about 3 hours at the show so you can enjoy it all.
Detroit International Auto Show Accessibility
1 Washington Blvd, Detroit, MI 48226
Do you have accessibility needs? Last year we had a wheelchair (snowmobiling mishap!) so we learned a lot about accessibility challenges.
- Handicap access starts at 8:00 am. This is an outstanding perk. So be sure to arrive early so you have a chance to see the show before it becomes flooded with people. We found this invaluable.
- You can rent motorized mobility chairs for $35. No need to push a wheelchair around!
- We stayed at the Renaissance Hotel because you can take the Detroit People Mover to Cobo. No need to move your vehicle!
- Uber-you can easily get around the city with Uber, just be sure to request the XL vehicle.
- If you choose to push a wheelchair, know that most of the hall is carpeting and it gets very hard to push through the displays if the carpet is thick. I know, because I pushed a wheelchair all day.
