Cheaper or easier.. pump or new drain pipe

I'm adding a new bathroom in the rear of my house and have a slope issue where I can't just tie it into the existing pipe. Is it cheaper and easier to add a new drain pipe to the street(60 feet) or to pump it into the existing systems? And are the pumps noisey?

With your info you provided, I would go with the ejector pump. I doubt the city would let you do that.
