Attendees are advised to beware of potential ticket scams.

Detroit offers a range of public transportation options to navigate downtown, including the Detroit People Mover, QLINE along Woodward Avenue, bus services by SMART and DDOT, as well as designated shuttle and ride-share drop-off points. Additional transportation services such as Detroit Air Xpress (DAX) and D2A2 provide convenient connections to downtown from Detroit Metro Airport and Ann Arbor, respectively.

For those opting to drive, prearranging parking is recommended due to limited availability in off-street lots and garages, with street parking likely restricted. Enforcement of parking regulations will be stringent, and towed vehicles are a possibility. Off-street parking options can be explored through the Park Detroit app or Park Whiz.

As excitement builds and NFL enthusiasts flock to Detroit, meticulous planning and preparation ensure a smooth and memorable experience for all attendees of the 2024 NFL Draft.
