Wikipedia tells us about the DLR system:

"The Docklands Light Railway (the DLR) is an automated light metro or light rail system opened in 1987 to serve the redeveloped Docklands area of London. It reaches north to Stratford, south to Lewisham, west to Tower Gateway and Bank in the City of London financial district, and east to Beckton, London City Airport and Woolwich Arsenal.

The system is not entirely unmanned: it uses minimal staffing on board trains and at major interchange stations; the 4 sub-surface stations are staffed to comply with underground station requirements. Similar proposals have been made for the adjacent system, the Tube.

The DLR is operated under a concession awarded by Transport for London to Serco Docklands, part of the Serco Group. The system is owned by Docklands Light Rail Limited,[7] part of the London Rail division of Transport for London. In 2011 the DLR carried over 86 million passengers. It has been extended several times and further extensions are being planned."
