Initially, the project required an investment capital of US$1.09 billion sourced by the ODA loans and the State budget. However, adjustments and exchange rate volatility have pushed up the figure to US$2.47 billion.

It will take passengers about 30 minutes to commute between downtown HCMC and Suoi Tien Park at a maximum speed of 80 kilometer per hour on the underground track and 110 kilometers per hour on the elevated track.
