Comment Trains (Score 1) 318

OK so maybe not a tech cost but a ridiculous train ticket fee in some countries that I just don't get. Say there is a train journey from station A to C, and you must change to a different line at B. Example tickets:
A to C (not leaving the station at B) = $6
A to B, exit, enter again then B to C = $8 ($4 each leg)
How and why should exiting and rentering the station at B cost $2?
Japan has the best costing since you pay for the distance you travel. Simple, effective!
