MISC | Fares on transport modes

Does anyone have a fairly accurate idea of how much, on average, a regular metro train costs? I understand light rail runs a little under $3 million a unit, I would imagine metros run higher than that.

Any, really. There was a thread way back on the prices of trams, I am looking for something on heavy rail - say a Hitachi one, or siemens, or any, really. Not light rail - heavy rail metro. Preferably in Us dollars, but I can convert if necessary. Just looking for some kind of idea on prices that has some backing.

It all depends on the size of the composition really, if it is 3, 5 or 7 car composition, 3 car would be in range of 3 million, 5 car around 4.5 million and 7 car composition in range of 5.5 million for the cheapest, for standards day Simmens you add about 30% on top of that...

Trams also vary, example from 3 car to 5 section trams, but cheapest are about 2.5-3 million to 4.2 million for 5 section manufactured by Simmens, this btw are also worst trams with many technical issues...

Each of Calgary's Light Rail Cost 1 million for each train and its made by siemens. But I think I read somewhere that the Bombardier ones in Toronto are 1.5 million for each train, might be old figures so im not too sure.

Kawasaki recently won a contract to supply Taipei MRT with 321 heavy-rail subway cars for US$447 million or US$1.39 million each. However, this may not be the standard rate as many of the other bidders complained that it was an "unreasonably low price".

Single ticket price in your country?

In Oslo, Norway, one ride costs 20,- NOK / 2.5,- euro. Then you can travel within the whole city for 1 hour. If it´s not bought in any kiosks, or from the ticketautomats at the stations, one ride ticket costs 30,- NOK / 3.8,- euro for an hour.


Tickets bought at the station, kiosks etc: 20,- NOK / 2.5,- euro
Tickets bought in the bus or tram: 30,- NOK / 3.8,- euro

In México City the single metro ticket costs

2 pesos

0,2 US dollar

You can travel all the network without a time limit. You can buy the tickets in all the metro stations (no automatic machines, always metro staff)

New York Subway:

$2 USD (1.6 Euro) for the entire system, with no time limit (plus it includes some free bus transfers). For every $10 you put on your MetroCard, you get an extra $2 (a free ride basically). There's also unlimmited ride passes, but I can't remember how much they cost off the top of my head.

Milan single ticket = 1 €

Available for 75 minutes on urban service of whole Atm (Milan Transportation Society) network: busses, trasms, trolleybusses and subway
You can have every journey you want during the 75 minutes, changing the mean of transport as you prefer; only a limitation: you can have just a journey on metro, once you get out you're not allowed to get back with the same ticket

Someone did London already. In Toronto, it's C$2.25 for a single-fare ride anywhere along any subway or bus, including transfers (but only within the city limits), cheaper if you buy in multiples.

Sydney, I believe the lowest adult fare (one way) is AU$2.60. This is based on distance traveled. Fare goes up from there. Of course, students and pensioners obtain reduced fares.
