one hour ticket, valid for the inner two tariff rings (basically the whole city of Prague), changing means of transport and direction allowed: 20CZK = ca. 0.66 €
24h ticket: 80CZK = ca. 2.66 €

single ticket valid for the greater Hamburg area, oneway: 2.40 € (the standard single ticket)
short trip within the central tariff zone (Citykarte): 1.05 €
short trip in other zones: 1.50 €
The zones are often very small and there are so many different tickets that you have to be almost an expert to find the cheapest one for your situation.
look here. These are just the single tickets!

Manila-LRT system (yellow and purple lines, excluding the blue line which is run by a private company): 12 for the shortest distance travelled up to 15 pesos to furthest, that translates to about 1 peso per Km or U$ 0.02 per Km, very cheap! actually it is the cheapest in Asia (it operates as a metro system). Although the system charges a very low tariff it actualy more earns more than enough to finance its operation with a fare box ration averaging 1-1.5 per month. It is cited by the WB as one of the most successfull implementation of an urban rail transit system in Asia.

Honour Fare System

Does your city have an honour system for fare collections?

Vancouver's Skytrain stations do not have fare gates. However, there are constables that do random checks to ensure ticket compliance.

Kraków (Cracow), Poland has the sam system:
You buy your ticket in shop/kiosk/ticket machine etc and you should "tag" (machine put mark on it) it in ticket machine in vechicle on your own. There are constables who check if you tag your ticket.

Single adult ticket costs 2,5 PLN (about $ 0,7). If you dont have tagged ticket you pay 70 pln fine (about $ 18)

Most German city's have an honour system.

You buy your ticket usually at a machine (all train stations, and some bus stops) and then you just pocket it. In most cases, you never take it out again. Very handy for Weekly or Monthly passes.

In Frankfurt all Trains (U-bahn, or commuter, suburban), buses and trams have the honour system. Train stations have no gates, and you can enter from any door on a bus or tram. You don't need to punch tickets anywhere.

There are inspectors, and on a standard month of using transport every day, you should expect to be asked once by an inspector. But you could still go several months without a check.

The only exception, for some odd reason is buses after 9pm. Then you need to show your ticket on boarding. But this is not the case for trams or trains, which operate as usual past 9pm.

In Barcelona's metro, all stations have fare gates. In FGC, in Barcelona-Vallès line have all stations except Peu del Funcular, the platform direction Terrassa/Sabadell in La Floresta station and Carretera de les Aigües. In Llobregat-Anoia line, have all stations except Colònia Güell and Martorell-Vila. From Martorell to Manresa-Igualada only have fare gates Olesa de Montserrat, Esparraguera, Manresa-Baixador and Igualada.

In RENFE, in Barcelona urban stations also have fare gates. Out Barcelona, the most important stations have, but the little stations doesn't have fare gates.

In Tramway network, all stations doesn't have fare gates. The trams have this machines to mark the ticket inside:

Fare gates in RENFE:

Any way, outside the "Cercanías" network in RENFE (Spanish Railways), any station have fare gates, but the tickets sold in all stations of Catalonia (except Mòra la Nova and 1 ticket office in Lleida) are magnetic for the fare gates. Also the tickets purchased in autovending machine aren't magnetic so.

(At the right, magnetic ticket for regional trains in Catalonia, this ticket is for the route Sabadell/Nord-Tarragona. The tichet of the left is a bus ticket, of the line Castellar del Vallès-Sabadell. The bus tickets will be purchased at the bus driver)

They're renewing all of it. The whole public transportation system of the Netherlands should work with smart cards and gates in two years or so.
Now we still work with an honour system on older trams, trains and the Amsterdam metro.

Hong Kong has a honor system for Light Rail Transit (LRT). You must either buy a correct zone WITH a correct bound single-ride ticket, or to beep with your Octopus Card before broading AND after alighting the LRVs. Else, you would have a surcharge of HK$290 (50 times the prevailing maximum adult single fare) and prosecution.

There's barriers at a few train stations in Melbourne, but there's always an open one for wheelchairs and anyone carrying bulky items. At the city stations there's actually a staff member there to check your ticket, but elsewhere, everyone just walks through the open gate.

Trams have no barriers and it's pretty much totally optional to validate the ticket if it's already been validated. Same with the majority of suburban stations.

Bus drivers sometimes let people on without validating to clear large queues (half a trainload of uni students waiting for the connecting bus = very long lines and at least two buses crush loaded).

"Validating" simply refers to placing the ticket in the machine, btw. On the ticket's first use, the machine will print the ticket's expiry time or date - and from there it's totally optional to validate the ticket again (but you're meant to do it on every trip) except to get though the ticket barriers and on buses.

There's inspectors on all modes though - $150 fine for not having the right ticket. Long ago, there used to be staff at every station and conductors on every tram - but that was a waste of money.

Houston's Metro line has the honor system. Last time I took it I just had a day pass and I saw an officer pass through the train looking for tickets at one point. No turn styles or anything like that. The train is so cheap that you'd be a fool not to get a ticket. I think the day pass cost about $2.
