    The DLR

    DLR stands for Docklands Light Railway. It is basically a modern version of the tube, which runs between south london and east london. It is a unique experience, as it doesn't even have a driver, just a conductor who checks your ticket.

    The Docklands Light Railway was constructed in the late '80 and offers good transport between the center of London , the Docklands and greenwich. The trains do not have a conductor, although there is always someone aboard checking tickets and operating the doors.
    The Docklands light railway offers a very good opportunity to explore the Docklands.

    Docklands Light Railway

    A great addition to London's transport system that has been created to meet the needs of Docklands since that area was redeveloped for residential, leisure and business purposes. The trains are driverless and very efficient. There is normally a DLR employee on board to make sure everything is okay and check tickets etc. The whole network is computer controlled and it is quite noticeable that when you need to change trains the other train will wait for passengers getting off the first one. If you have a travelcard or season ticket for London this will cover fares on the DLR.

    The Docklands Light Railway has a futuristic design, like this train station at Canary Wharf .Sometimes the stops are only 100m apart like between West India Quay and Canary Wharf.
