Prices somewhat more expensive on stations, and quarters smaller. But stations also may not have monorail fees.
Prices for each category are minimum guidelines for each standard of living, and considers only a single person.
The higher category (classes: subsistence, poor, etc) shows a persons income. IE, if you're earning 20 cr/day, you're at the subsistence level. The living standard that goes with each class is the default for living expenses (half your income) -- someone who makes 50 cr/day (250 per week, remember) is in the Struggling class, and will have a standard of Good Living at 125 cr/week. *However* an individual could choose to either live beyond his means and maintain a lifestyle beyond that which is normal for his income, or save money by making do with worse than he could afford. An individual might also have living quarters of one standard and food/entertainment expenses of another, depending on what's important to that person.
