The Docklands Light Railway (DLR) serves the east of the city of London, and although it's a 'light rail' and not a tube, since it's not entirely underground and its tracks do not directly connect with other tube lines, they use the same tickets and appear on tube maps anyway.

A curiosity about this line is that the trains are driverless, but there is always a 'passenger service agent' (PSA) who ensures that everything runs smoothly, and who can take control of the train in an emergency.

Construction of this line began in 1980 as a way of regenerating the East London docks, which had been in decline since the 1960s. Initially, it was meant to be a tramway, but the plans evolved due to a significant increase in passenger numbers, and gradually new stations and sub-lines were added, making the line map a bit more complicated.

Although it looks like a spider web of routes on the map, it actually covers these four routes:

The Docklands Light Railway (DLR) is one of the most heavily used lines in the London tube network. In 2013, it averaged 101 million passengers annually. However, by the financial year 2022/23, passenger numbers on the DLR had reached 92.3 million, reflecting ongoing high usage and the dynamic nature of public transportation in London.
