Comparing Subway Fares From Around the World

This post from Treehugger compares subway fares from around the world.

The list is not comprehensive, but includes metros from many major world cities. Mexico City's system comes in as the cheapest fare, while New York City's recently raised fare comes in around the middle of the list.
