The Beijing Metro

Air conditioned.
Easy to navigate.
In Chinese and English.
LED sign which tells you which way the train is going, the next station, which side the doors will open on.
Very cheap. 20p for a single, for what would be £pounds in London. Even allowing for income differences, dirt cheap - helping people use public transport.

For all the complaining we all do about TfL, London's transport network really isn't bad. That said, London could do well for looking at Beijing and borrowing some ideas.
