Default Does a Metro anywhere have a first class section?

Does any city's mass transit have a first class section? India's Supreme Court weighs the issue of a sitting only class in the Delhi Metro, with fares ~5 times as high:

German S-Bahnen traditionally did but this is disappearing.

The Paris metro used to but phased them out in 1981.

I've not been there but Dubai has a "gold class" on its metro.

Thanks! Double the price, not 5 times like Delhi is mulling:

Some Metro commuters are willing to pay double the price for a trip. Is it worth it? We ask Gold Nol card users.

In Chennai's suburban rail, 1st class fare from Kodambakkam to Trishulam
(the airport station) is Rs. 65 (US$ 1) whereas people's class fare is Rs. 5.

I didn't know where else to ask the question. Be that as it may, I've seen
speculation over whether it would be a good idea for underground trains
to be longer than platforms. If they were thus lengthened, then since the
carriages at the ends could have at most one door, foot traffic could be
limited to the capacity of just one door by making them sitting only
carriages, and thereby upper class.

Delhi has women-only coaches, which is a form of class system.

Women only sections are common in People's class on buses and trains in
India, but not in 2nd or 1st class. They're not a separate fare class.

The LU S class trains have the first or last two sets of doors non-opening
at quite a few stations. They certainly don't limit them to seating-only.
