Docklands Light Railway

Docklands Light Railway — London’s innovative, driverless Docklands Light Railway (DLR) serves parts of East and South East London.  The DLR connects with the Tube network at Bank and Tower Gateway (Tower Hill) stations and also at Shadwell, Stratford, Bow, Heron Quays, Canning Town and Canary Wharf. The DLR serves Beckton, Stratford and London City Airport to the East and North East and Docklands, Greenwich and Lewisham to the South.

The DLR also connects with London’s new cable car, the Emirates Air Line, at Royal Victoria.

The DLR runs from 5.30 am to 12.30 am Monday to Saturday and from 7 am to 11.30 pm on Sunday. DLR fares are the same as those on the Tube.

You can pay for your DLR fare with a Visitor Oyster card, Oyster card or Travelcard as well as contactless payment cards.  If you pay with a Visitor Oyster card, Oyster card or contactless payment card, the fare is the same. For contactless payment cards issued outside the UK, check for any transaction fees or bank charges that may apply
