The Cebu Heritage website recounts
Unknown to the newer generation, Cebu used to have a railway system that stretched from as far as Argao down south all the way to Danao up north. The central station and the depot were located in Cebu City somewhere at the area now occupied by the Cebu South Bus Terminal and the CITOM-LTO compound. The railway system ceased to function after World War II. (Author Emperor Karl)

The website www.tropicalpenpals.com says that two congressmen filed House Bill 310 and House Bill 432 in 2009 proposing the construction of a Light Rail Transit (similar to the one that runs in Metro Manila). I just wonder if the bills filed by Congressman Eduardo R. Gullas and Congressman Raul V. Del Mar were refiled.
Friends in Cebu that the construction of an LRT in Cebu might help with the growing traffic problems they have there.
