Has a mass transit system been started in HCMC?...

I was last in Saigon two years ago and read that a subway and/or elevated light rail system was in the works. What about a street level light rail system, has that been proposed?

I recall seeing photos of street car lines in Hanoi during or before the 1960s. Has Hanoi began a mass transit system?

Supposedly work has started but it'll be more than a few years before you can go for a trip

Nice dream here ...... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWNnB_SvaGM

Actually both cities have broken ground on the projects, just depends on the completion timescale. In HCMC, I think the area around Ben Thanh market will never be the same when it is all done and dusted (complete with the new skyscraper near by - bitexco.com.vn/news/vietnam-welcomes-new-lan… ).
