Not so fast – not everyone is impressed by the Detroit QLINE’s not so fast pace.

The QLINE opened to the public last Friday and had some setbacks over the weekend such as long wait-times, stoppage while a car was towed from the tracks and mechanical problems.

The website, www.NoSoPureMichigan.com captured some of the frustrations in a spoof video.

“The train’s downtown commute now rivals the walking pace of a 62-year-old woman,” the video states.

The QLINE spans a three-mile stretch of Woodward Ave. and cost about $140 million to build.
