New DLR is fully automatic
The only humans involved are the euphemistically-titled Revenue Protection Officers - they check that you've not jumped the barrier.

Tube will be going the same way within 10 years, I predict. Bigger and busier than the LA metro (roughly 10x daily ridership).

ETA: DLR ridership, on its own, is on par with the entire LA Metro.

New No, not all of Finland is.
But, see the word "Helsinki" in that URL? That's not exactly a six-mile country-road straight with a single T-crossing and Children Of The Corn on each side as far as the eye can see.

(Though, yeah: 1) "Test". 2) All of two "buses", "carrying up to 12 public passengers" [each, presumably]. 3) "in Helsinki’s Hernesaari neighborhood", not exactly downtown Tokyo at rush hour. But still, not North by Northwest, either.)
