To the left we have an MTA Metrocard, the smart card used on New York City public transport. This particular card has a 7-day "unlimited ride" card, which costs $24 (thats about ?13). Monthly tickets cost $76 (about ?40) whilst a single day tickets costs ?7 (about ?4). It's valid on all local buses (but not express buses), the subway, Staten Island Ferry, Staten Island Railroad and even the Roosevelt Island Cable Car. In New York all the buses and subways are air-conditioned. The subway runs 24-hours a day, has large trains (about the size of main-line UK trains), has a guard (should you need help or feel unsafe), express and local trains and half the subway system does not shut down each weekend for "essential engineering work". Should you prefer to use cash, a single ticket on buses or the subway costs $2 (a little over ?1) regardless of distance travelled or time of day. Contrast with London. A one day all zone travel card costs ?12.40 if you want to travel at peak times, or ?6.30 if you travel off-peak only. A seven-day ticket for zones 1-6 costs ?41, whilst a montly ticket costs ?157.50. This is valid on the tube, buses, DLR, Tramlink and overground rail services within the London Travelcard zones. Single cash tickets on the tube currently cost between ?3 (for the central zone only) to ?4 (for six zones). These are due to rise by ?1 next year, making a single journey if paid by cash ?4, just within the central zone. You can use an Oyster card, which reduces the fares to around half that price, but you have to pay ?3 for the card. In London the tube shuts down by about midnight each night, it is incredibly hot and crowded (the trains are small) and about half the lines have bus replacements most weekends nowdays. There are no guards on the tubes, buses or most trains. And the ?8-a day congestion charge to drive into central London (and soon, parts of West London) is meant to help pay for public transport. New York doesn't have a congestion charge. So why are fares in London typically around 3-4 times higher than in New York?

The ticket machines issued small cardboard tickets detailing price and station of issue, with no magnetic strip or similar device. The collectors at the destination needed to know all of the correct ticket prices from each station of origin.
