Joe Louis Arena station is a Detroit People Mover station in Downtown Detroit, Michigan. It is located across Steve Yzerman Drive from Joe Louis Arena, near the intersection of 3rd Street and Jefferson Avenue where M-10 terminates. It also serves the Riverfront Promenade, the Wayne County Community College Downtown Detroit campus and provides a direct connection for residents of the Riverfront Apartments. The station is connected to the pedestrian access bridge between the Joe, its parking deck, and Cobo Center.

The station future may be in doubt as Joe Louis Arena will be demolished after the Red Wings' front office completes its move to the new Little Caesars Arena in late 2017.[citation needed]
