UP welcomes the AGT

Philippine Railways confirmed on Sunday that the first Filipino-built Automated Guideway Transit or AGT has already arrived in the University of the Philippines’ main campus.

Bearing the logo of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and UP’s seal, the blue and white train will be used for the test runs on an elevated track as high as 500 meters, according to reports.

The AGT prototype will be tested on a curved and circular track inside the university. A previous test was done on a straight track but the train used for the test is an earlier version of the AGT. 

While many are excited that the monorail system project is on its final test stages, many members of the UP community are now wondering what will happen to the iconic Ikot.(Photo via
