The first step and all that?

No, just kidding, it will never get better.

Was in Tokyo a few weeks ago and was blown away by how well the transit system in Japan works. Was just embarrassed at the nonsense we deal with.

The Tokyo transit system is much more expensive per ride than MTA. Also, I believe they are different train companies (?private).

They are owned by different companies, which can be confusing. Luckily, they all accepted the same payment card (which, surprise surprise, was better than the crappy metro cards), and they all connected, so it didn't really matter.

It was a bit more expensive, but not much-I think we generally paid around $2.40 per ride. They do have zone based metering, so if you lived further out, that may be true.
