The Docklands Light Rail, the DLR, runs in the eastern part of London. The DLR is a kind of train that runs above ground for the most part and is completely separate from the Underground system. What is special about the DLR is that automatic steering takes place so that a driver is not present.
The network of the DLR covers a total of 38 km and there are 45 stations. Below is a map of all routes and stations of the DLR.
in the DLR you can pay with regular transport tickets such as the Oyster Card and the Travelcard. See the special tickets and tickets page for this.
