Public transport in London is most expensive in the world
A Deutsche Bank survey of 55 major global cities sees London’s public transport rank as more expensive than any of the other cities surveyed.
A recent survey carried out by Deutsche Bank has revealed that London’s public transport is more expensive than any other major city around the globe.
The report detailed the top 55 most expensive cities when it comes to public transport, London clinching top spot.
In London, monthly transport passes can cost commuters in excess of $179 (£141), while Dublin holds second spot on the list, charging passengers $128 (£101). Third was New Zealand’s Auckland with costs reaching $125 (£98).
The report states: “The good news is that public transport is mid-ranking in terms of expensiveness in Singapore, Copenhagen or Oslo suggesting deliberate policy moves, where individuals are actively discouraged from buying a new car as policy makes it extraordinarily expensive. So maybe walk or ride a bike more there. London has the most expensive public transport in the world and is also the most costly place to hire a car.
