HCMC public transportation projects have satisfied 10.8 percent of target improvements to meet increasing demand.
The initial target of the department was to increase metro, tramway and monorails by 20 percent, according to the Department of Transportation. It is estimated to increase to 11.1 percent by 2015.
The main cause of the low percentage is lack of funding, according to the Department of Transportation. There is a lack of stations making it unfavorable for commuters.
