There are at least two New Yorkers that read this blog (I have a very large audience ;). So I’d like to address a question to them.
So, here’s my question. I noticed that the New York Subway Map has no zones. How do you know how much you’re going to pay for a subway journey? Or do you just buy a MetroCard and not worry about how much each journey costs?
Actually, this question could apply to anyone who lives in a city with an urban railway. Does your transport system have zones? If not, how do you know how much each journey will cost?
