BRT can only work in VN if these buses run in their own dedicated lanes - I would hope that's the plan; otherwise, forget about it.

That elevated line in HN looks great and appears to be much further along than the metro project in Saigon. Corruption and general incompetence has delayed the HCMC metro line many years. It's been 'under construction' for years and years without evidence of any progress until quite recently. Most recent reports have completion at some point in 2018. We'll see...

In terms of traffic in HCMC, it's now reaching the point where getting from point A to point B is a nearly impossible task. I live approximately 1 km from where I work. There are days where it takes nearly 30 min to get there. This city needs massive investment in public transport and road infrastructure asap.
