The system includes elevated and underground sections. Another line (Line 3 - Van Mieu Line) is under construction, and was expected to commence operations at the end of 2022, however, in September 2022, the authorities requested to extend the deadline to 2025,[5] and increase the budget by a further VND1.9 trillion ($80.77m USD).

The system will eventually consist of 8 lines with a total length of 318 kilometres (198 mi), and is initially expected to carry 200,000 passengers per day. Upon opening, daily ridership was at 12,000.[6]
