Well I know a city like New York could definitely use a campaign like this. To coincide with the APEC Summit in Beijing, the city has launched a campaign and competition to encourage commuters to have better manners.

The competition is called “Be a Splendid Beijinger and Welcome APEC—Civilized, Polite Passengers,” and it rewards very respectful and polite subway and bus riders with $10 subway passes as well as certificates of honor. 

Roughly 8,000 guides have been deployed at various public transit locations to encourage good behavior in passengers. The top 100 riders will be chosen from a pool of 40,000 who entered the contest. Anyone who entered was asked to explain why they should be considered for the prize and what kind of behavior they typically show on public transit.
