OC Tranpo's fares have a flat rate of $3.00 with cash or $1.90 paying with tickets, but late in the evening that will get you a three hour transfer instead of a 1.5 hour transfer, so I guess that's something.

I believe the Transjakarta Busway charges 2,000 rupiah (US$0.22) between 5.00 - 7.00 AM. The normal price would be 3,500 rupiah (US$0.40) flat fare

As Mr. Denmark said, no peak/off-peak fares, but double price at night. I have never ever payed double when taking the night bus, though, and no one seems to mind

The Jubilee line extention in London cost Ł3.5bn, that's more expensive per km than the Channel Tunnel...

The Vancouver SkyTrain Canada Line is 19km long with 16 stations. The line is entirely grade separated with roughly 2/3rds being underground in bored and cut-and-cover tunnels and the remainder being along elevated guideways and a very brief stretch of at-grade. The cost is about $2 billion Canadian / $2.013 billion USD.

Sounds like similar systems length wise and amount of underground/aboveground stations - yet Dublins' is 5 billion CDN more - it's no wonder that Vancouvers' system will be so inadequate.

I beleive the ballpark price tag of construction of metro in Russia is $US 50 mln per 1 km, including stations. The average distance between stations in Moscow is 1.6 km (and I think it is typical of metro systems in other cities).

I've seen a number for Madrid - ballpark $US80 mln per km.

The thing is things always seem to cost a ton more in Ireland to build then elsewhere, perhaps because it's an Island I don't know but that will probably be a part of it too.

Amsterdam North-South line is 10km long, still underconstruction and already costs 1,8 billion, which is about 2,6 billion dollars or 260 million dollars per kilometer.

well, i'm quite sure for one thing that Dublin is building platforms that are longer than 50 metres. they also have Hong Kong styled stations with huge main concourse areas on top of the station platform with multiple entrances. add in the more expensive architectual finishings/designs.

more importantly, i doubt they'd cut and cover the entire tunnel - Dublin is probably doing the entire thing bored. And what about the type of rail (Dublin is probably building heavy rail as supposed to the Canada Line's automated light rail) and a lot more cars are probably on order (not to mention the cars are much more glamorous).
