The OC Transpo: You live it, you breathe it, you pay for it. But just how much? We looked around to see how much Ottawans pay for public transportation in comparison to other cities across Europe, from London to Moscow.

The findings? In some ways, we're luckier than others. In other ways, maybe not so much.

To get you started off, here's how much fares are in our own city are for an adult transfer (regular routes only):

-With cash: $3.65

-With Presto: $3.00

-With tickets: 2 ($1.65 each, so $3.30)
