How much more does a mag lev train cost than a regular train?

    There is not too much of a difference, but the maglev is definitely more expensive. I compared the maglev in Shanghai with the BART system in San Fransisco, and the average cost of a one way ticket was around 5 dollars in San Francisco. In contrast to that, the one way ticket for the mag lev was 50 yuan, which equates to a little over 7 dollars. There are higher and lower prices than these for both systems, but in most cases, the BART is cheaper than the mag lev. Score one for American public transportation!
