Your article gives a good overview, but I still don't actually know how much it's going to cost to make a particular journey. By implication, you pay for stages based on where you board and get off, but if that's the case, why are they selling tickets in 10s of Dirhams for journeys with prices like 1.80 and 5.80? The official website is no help on this.
Oh, and how can gold class offer a nicer view? Rose-tinted windows or what?
