Re: Doubling the subway fare in 1948

The single counter example, Hong Kong, depends on lucrative real estate rents--imagine the MTA owning/collecting rents on essentially ALL of the office buildings along the major trunks.

Here's a list of the farebox recovery ratios for most systems throughout the world. As you can see, you missed a few systems that have 100% farebox recovery ratios.

One of these is London.

Incidentally, the NYCBOT had farebox recovery ratios of 159% in 1941 and 142% in 1945 on the nickel fare.
