if he asked you out on a first date and you're traveling that far to see him, then if i was in his shoes, I'd definitely pay.
if you asked him out in this specific scenario, I (as the guy) would like to go dutch at the least
if it was equal distances and both parties were making the same amount, ideally they should go dutch in my opinion1

I'm all for going dutch, it's just part of being a responsible, reasonable person. If the location was further than the girl was happy to have to pay for she could always ask for it to be closer. I think the whole deal is that you're there to get to know the person and spend time with them, if you're focusing so intently on who's paying for what, is it really worth being there at all?1
