Imagine gliding through the picturesque hills of Camp John Hay in Baguio City on a cable car. This vision could soon become a reality—or spark debate—as the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) partners with Japanese company Zip Infrastructure Co. to explore this innovative transportation option.

During a recent visit to Tokyo, BCDA President Joshua Bingcang and Zip Infrastructure CEO Takamasa Suchi signed an agreement to evaluate the feasibility of introducing Zippar, a self-driven cable car system, in Camp John Hay. This initiative aims to provide an alternative transportation solution to ease traffic congestion in the area.


Zippar, designed to navigate curves and branches while being controlled from a centralized hub, promises to enhance urban mobility and promote environmentally sustainable transportation solutions within Camp John Hay.

Bingcang highlighted the potential impact of this technology, stating, "This technology could enhance urban mobility, reduce traffic congestion, and promote environmentally sustainable transportation solutions. By leveraging Zippar technology, we can create a seamless and efficient transport system within Camp John Hay, making it more accessible and enjoyable for residents and visitors alike."

Transportation Secretary Jaime Bautista expressed cautious optimism about the project. "Zippar could be a game-changer for urban public transport while presenting an ideal green transport model. But we choose to temper our excitement with the need to first undertake the requisite feasibility studies. We hope to determine the possibility of adopting Zippar to a highly congested metropolis like Metro Manila," Bautista said.

In 2019, DOTr has offered Baguio City a partner deal for a cable car system from La Union to Baguio

What is Zippar?

Launched in 2018, Zippar is a system of capsule cars running on zip lines designed to alleviate traffic congestion. It offers a cost-effective alternative to traditional, more expensive railway systems. Currently being tested in Odawara City, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, these trials are crucial for assessing the system's practicality and performance in real-world conditions. If successful, Zippar could be implemented in various urban settings by 2025.

Cable Cars: An Ongoing Discussion in the Philippines

The idea of using cable cars to solve the Philippines' transportation issues has been considered since 2018 under President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration. The concept gained renewed attention when Senator Robin Padilla advocated for the revival of the Manila Urban Car Cable Project in 2022.

The Manila Urban Car Cable Project is a 4.5-kilometer cable car system proposed to link Marikina City to Pasig City, featuring six stations:

  • LRT-2 Santolan Station, Marikina City
  • Libis, Quezon City
  • Eastwood, Quezon City
  • Santolan, Pasig City
  • Manggahan, Pasig City
  • Rosario, Pasig City

The Department of Transportation (DOTr) endorsed the Manila Urban Car Cable Project to the National Economic and Development Authority-Investment Coordination Committee (NEDA-ICC) in 2021. However, it is still awaiting evaluation and approval, with no updates since then.


As BCDA and Zip Infrastructure embark on this exploratory phase for Zippar in Camp John Hay, the prospect of cable cars in the Philippines continues to capture the public's imagination, promising both excitement and skepticism.

President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos has mandated the inclusion of the “Bagong Pilipinas” hymn and pledge in flag ceremonies at government offices and public schools to promote the principles of the Bagong Pilipinas governance and leadership.

On June 4, Marcos issued Memorandum Circular No. 52, instructing all national government agencies, GOCCs, and educational institutions, including state universities and colleges (SUCs), to incorporate the hymn and pledge into their weekly flag ceremonies. Local government units (LGUs) are also encouraged to follow suit, adhering to existing laws and regulations.


The circular, signed by Executive Secretary Lucas Bersamin, is effective immediately and includes the text of the hymn and pledge.

Bagong Pilipinas Hymn lyrics

Panahon na ng pagbabago

Dahil sa ito ay kinakailangan

Tayo na magtulong-tulong

Na paularin ang mahal nating bayan

Panahon na ng pagbabago

Dahil sa ito ay kinakailangan

Tayo na magtulong-tulong

Na paularin ang mahal nating bayan

Panahon na ng pagbabago

At iayos ang mga dapat ayusin

Dapat lang maging tungkulin

Ng bawat mamamayan dito sa atin

Gawin ang pagbabago

Patungo sa pag-asenso

Magsikap ng mabuti

At nang guminhawa tayo

Ipagmalaki natin sa mundo at ipamalas

Ang Bagong Pilipino at Bagong Pilipinas

Panahon na ng pagbabago

Tangkilikin natin ang sariling atin

At tama lang na ugaliin

Kaysa sa iba sa atin ang unahin

Panahon na ng pagbabago

At manguna sa kahit anong larangan

Ang tagumpay ay karangalan

Ialay o ihandog natin sa bayan

Ilang ulit nang napatunayan ng Pilipino

Ang husay at lakas, kagandahan, at talento

Handang makipag paligsahan kahit anong oras

Ang bagong Pilipino, ang Bagong Pilipinas

Panahon na ng pagbabago

Buhay natin ay gawing maaliwalas

Marami ang magandang bukas

Ang ibubunga ng Bagong Pilipinas


Bagong Pilipinas Pledge

Bilang Pilipino, buong pagmamalaki kong isasabuhay ang Bagong Pilipinas.

Buhay sa aking dugo ang lahing dakila, magiting at may dangal

Palaging dadalhin sa puso, isip at diwa ang aking pagmamahal sa kultura at bayang sinilangan;

Kaisa ng bawat mamamayan, iaalay ko ang aking talino at kasanayan sa pagpapaunlad ng aking Bayan;

Taglay ang galing na naaayon sa mga pandaigdigang pamantayan;

Magiging instrument ako sa pagsulong ng kagalingan, karunungan at kapayapaan.

Makikiisa at makikilahok ako sa mga adhikain ng pamamahalaan dahil ang kaunlaran at hindi lamang responsibilidad ng iilan.

Isusulong at pangagalagaan ko ang karangalan, Kalayaan at interes ng aking bayang minamahal; 

Bilang Pilipino na may pagmahahal, pakilam at malasakit; hindi makasarili kundi para sa mas nakakarami; tatahakin ko ang landas tungo sa isang Bagong Pilipinas!

Philippine Independence Day, celebrated annually on June 12, stands as a testament to the nation's enduring spirit and quest for freedom.

June 12

This day commemorates the historic proclamation of independence from Spanish colonial rule in 1898, marking the culmination of centuries of struggle and sacrifice by Filipino revolutionaries.

June 12 is also observed as a regular holiday in the Philippines.

Philippine Independence Day, celebrated on June 12, marks the country's proclamation of independence from Spanish colonial rule in 1898.

This day holds profound historical significance as it symbolizes the end of over three centuries of Spanish domination and the Filipinos' enduring quest for sovereignty.

The struggle for independence began in earnest in the late 19th century with the rise of the nationalist movement led by figures like José Rizal, Andrés Bonifacio, and Emilio Aguinaldo. Their collective efforts culminated in the Philippine Revolution, which ultimately led to the declaration of independence in Kawit, Cavite.

Emilio Aguinaldo, who became the first President of the Philippines, proclaimed independence from a balcony of his ancestral home, an event that was accompanied by the first public performance of the Philippine national anthem and the raising of the Philippine flag.

July 4

Initially, Philippine Independence Day was celebrated on July 4, the same day as American Independence Day, to commemorate the granting of independence by the United States in 1946 after World War II. However, in 1962, President Diosdado Macapagal shifted the date to June 12 to honor the original 1898 declaration, reaffirming the country's sovereignty and rich historical heritage.

Modern-Day Celebrations

Today, Philippine Independence Day is celebrated with a blend of solemn remembrance and vibrant festivities, reflecting both historical pride and contemporary cultural identity.

1. Flag Raising Ceremonies:
The day typically begins with a national flag-raising ceremony, with the most significant event held at the Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, Cavite. Government officials, including the President, deliver speeches emphasizing the importance of independence and national unity.

2. Parades and Cultural Shows:
Across the country, parades featuring colorful floats, traditional dances, and reenactments of historical events are common. These parades serve not only as entertainment but also as educational displays that highlight the Philippines' rich cultural diversity and history.

3. Military Displays:
In major cities, military parades and displays showcase the strength and discipline of the Philippine Armed Forces. These events underscore the nation's ongoing commitment to protect its sovereignty and the importance of a strong national defense.

4. Community Gatherings:
Local communities often come together for street parties, food festivals, and public concerts. These gatherings foster community spirit and offer a platform for showcasing local talents and cuisines.

5. Overseas Celebrations:
Filipinos living abroad also celebrate Independence Day with various activities organized by Filipino communities and embassies. These events help maintain cultural ties and national pride among the Filipino diaspora.


Philippine Independence Day serves as a reminder of the country's arduous journey towards freedom and the sacrifices made by countless Filipinos. It is a day to honor the past while celebrating the present and looking forward to the future. In a modern context, it also serves as a unifying force for Filipinos worldwide, fostering a sense of national identity and pride.

As the Philippines continues to navigate its place in the global community, Independence Day remains a pivotal moment for reflection and celebration, embodying the resilience, creativity, and spirit of the Filipino people.
