Arnhem:
1€ but you can't switch (trolley-)buslines!
you can with the national 'strippenkaart' (a card worth of 15 to 45 'zones') yet that will be more expensive

actually I have travelled for free on lines where there was a shortage of staff and busses, so the company hired luxery touring cars but the hastily hired driver forgot his
little hand presser for the tickets

From 2012 or so the whole country NL will have 1 pricing system for all types of public transport - a chipcard

sounds like The Christchurch metro card system which was implemented around this time last year.

I think the cheapest train ticket in Tokyo is 120 yen (a little over 1 USD). For the "Tokyo Metro" system, it's 160 yen+, by distance.

Interestingly enough, the more profitable railways have cheaper fares, and the least profitable/loss railways have the highest fares. They're all set by the government, even for the private railways.

In Belgium all the prices are equal for a single ride : € 1,00

two exceptions tough :

-when you by a 10 ride ticket (€ 7,50) as a frequent user you pay only € 0,75 for one ride.This does not count in Brussels where the price is € 1,00 anytime.
-when older than 65 , public transport is free in the entire country !!
