The longest tramline system in the country is now in Misamis Oriental.
This after the Department of Agriculture through the High Value Crops Development Program (DA-HVCDP) and the Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization (PhilMech) recently inaugurated the 2,211-meter Agricultural Tramline System (ATS) connecting barangays Luna and Malagana in Claveria, Misamis Oriental.
The ATS is aimed at providing ease in transporting agricultural produce from remote farm areas to the nearest market. The P6.1M bi-cable tramline system is the fourth ATS established in Region 10 and is now considered as the longest in the country.
