Malolos City is subdivided into 51 barangays, each barangay is administered by "Barangay Chairman or Captain."
Many of the name of the barangays were derived from the name of common Philippine trees, because Malolos was once a vast virgin land and forests, before the Spaniards came and christianized the natives. While others were named in honor of their patron saints.Map Barangay 1-May-20001-Aug-2007Central Luzon8,204,742 9,720,982 Bulacan2,234,088 2,826,926 Malolos City175,291 223,069 1.

HistoryThe Malolos Cathedral
No other towns in the Philippines can be linked to the great patriots and heroes in the country's history more than the City of Malolos — capital of the short-lived Philippine Republic. Such name as General Emilio Aguinaldo, Pedro A. Paterno, Dr. Jose P. Rizal, Marcelo H. del Pilar, Pio del Pilar, Gregorio del Pilar, Apolinario Mabini, Antonio Luna, Felipe Calderon, General Isidoro D. Torres and a host of others are forever engraved and enshrined in the annals of Philippine History, all of whom share one commonality - MALOLOS.
According to Blair and Robertson, the name “Li-han” or "Li Han" was the ancient Chinese name for Malolos, whose leaders bore the title of “Gat-Salihan” or Gatchalian (derived from "Gat sa Li-Han").
In 1580, eight years after Maynilad (present_day Manila) was captured by the Spaniards from Rajah Soliman and Rajah Matanda, Spanish missionaries discovered a small settlement called Li Han, with 4,000 unbaptized souls. Later, after clearing forests and virgin lands, the settlement grew, and the population increased. After the construction of a big church, the place was made into a town. From the very beginning, Tagalog made up the majority of the Malolos populace. They were led by prominent families, among them the Gatsalians (Gatchalian), and the Manahans.
The name of Malolos was presumably derived from the Tagalog word "Paluslos", meaning " downwards". The name resulted from a misunderstanding among the first Spanish missionaries who reached the place. Searching for inhabited places along the Calumpit River, these priests came upon some natives of a riverside barrio (now Kanalate or Canalate). They asked for the name of the place. The natives, not knowing the Spanish tongue, answered that the flow of the river in that part was downstream -"paluslos"-, which the Spaniards pronounced "Malolos" or "Malulos". Corruption of the word through the years led to present "Malolos".
To cite all the historical events that transpired in Malolos, one could very well fill a good-sized book. The major events especially those that revolved around the first Republic, cannot be left unmentioned. Some of these are the petition of the women of Malolos, the establisment of the Constitutional Convention, drafting and ratification of the Malolos Contitution, and the inauguration of the the first Philippine Republic.
The wealth of Malolos lies not only in its more than four thousand hectares of fertile rice lands and more than two thousand hectares of fishponds, but in the character of its people as well. Its people have long been known for their diligence and ingenuity. In early days, farming and fishing took up most of the poultry, farming, pigeon rising, carpentry and woodwork, and other profitable cottage industries and handicrafts. A major factor in Malolos growth and development was the opening of the Manila-Dagupan railways or Ferrocaril de Manila-Dagupan (Spanish) in 1892. With the advent of the railroad came new ideas from Manila and other places. Another factor is Malolos proximity to industrial and business centers. Only 42 kilometers off from Manila, the town and its people are inevitable subjected to an influx of metropolitan thoughts.
In work methods and tools, it is estranged to find Malolos folk using a combination of the old and the new Ramshackle hops tremble to the whirl of modern electric-powered machines. Fishermen go out to the sea in the same dugouts their grandfathers used. Some of them have outboard motors. And handicraftsmen, woodworkers and weavers still follow the ageless techniques of their forefathers.
It was in summer of 2004, the construction of the Malolos flyover marks a new milestone in their flourishing history being the first in the city. Part of the President's Bridge Program, the construction was undertaken in a record-breaking 60 days only according to the Department of Public Works and Highways. The facility is expected to solve the daily traffic jam at the place, which have become a bane to motorist and also to employees in both private and government offices in this city. This remarkable feat will fastrack not only the city's development in commerce and trade but its neighboring municipalities as well.
The Revolt of Ladia
In 1643, due to Spanish oppression throughout the country, Pedro Landia, a native of Borneo, who claimed to be descendant of Rajah Matanda and later proclaimed himself as "Rajah ng mga Tagalog" (Rajah of the Tagalogs), instigated the people of Malolos to rise in arms against the Spanish rule. He was able to recruit a number of followers. But before he could carry out his plan, Friar Cristobal Enriquez had already entreated the people to remain loyal to the Fatherland, Spain. Later, Pedro Ladia was arrested and sent to Manila to be executed.
The Women of Malolos
It was a town of so many heroes and great men along its enclaves, among which are the 21 Women of Malolos. On December 12, 1888, 20 young women from the Chinese-mestizo families of Malolos, Bulacan–the Reyeses, Tantocos, Tanchangcos, Tiongsons, Uitangcoys, petitioned the newly-arrived Gov. Gen. Valeriano Weyler to allow the opening of a night school - at their own expense where they could learn to read and write Spanish, the language which would eradicate friar domination and put them in touch with liberal ideas current in Europe. With Weyler;s blessing and over the objections of the friar curate, the school opened in early 1889. The audacity and the success of these women did not go unnoticed. But the women's greatest adulation came from Dr. Jose Rizal in his letter of February 22, 1889, "Sa Mga Kababayang Dalaga Sa Malolos." The Women of Malolos were of the breed who looked at far horizons and thought of country above self, who stood up for what is right and just over what is merely convenient, who planned and acted not only for the future and the next generation, who decisively acted on their mouthed good intentions.
The Malolos Republic
Malolos is the historical site of the constitutional convention of 1898 that led to the establishment of the First Philippine Republic, the first republic in Asia, led by Emilio Aguinaldo. Malolos served as the capital of the short-lived republic from 1898-1899. In 1899, after the Malolos Constitution was ratified, the Universidad Literia de Filipinas was established in Malolos, Bulacan. It offered Law as well as Medicine, Surgery and Notary Public; Academia Militar which was established on October 25, 1898; and The Burgos Institute, an exclusive school for boys
It became that the municipality of Malolos was proposed to be a city in 1999 through Repulic Act No. 8754 entitled "An Act Converting the Municipality of Malolos in Bulacan Province into a Component City to be known as the City of Malolos" by former Representative, now Vice Governor Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado (as its author) with efforts of former Malolos Mayor Restituto "Resty" Roque. But the plebiscite appeared to be against it, however, it was appealed in 2002 and became a city officially in October 8, 2002.
Proposed Lone Congressional District of the City of Malolos
Through the years, the City of Malolos has grown and developed from a mere municipality to a key component city of Bulacan province. Being the known capital of Bulacan, the City of Malolos has a population of some 255,000 Bulakeños and has greatly progressed and developed as a local economy with major industries like agriculture, real estate, bag making, flowers and ornamental plants, food and food processing, garments, gifts, house ware and decors.
It cannot be doubted that the City of Malolos is in itself a strong political unit with a booming local economy. The City of Malolos, therefore, deserves to have its own separate congressional district to further sustain its continuing growth and development. This historic, bustling, and progressive city deserves an era of political and economic peace, independence, and prosperity, which can only take place if the City of Malolos is converted into a separate congressional district, having its own representative to congress who would advance its political and economic welfare in the national stage.
"Ang Malolos, mula noon hanggang ngayon, ay simbolo ng kadakilaan ng Pilipino, ng kanyang pagmamahal sa kalayaan at giting upang ipagtanggol ito. Nararapat Iamang na biyayaan ang Malolos ng sanying distrito upang magampanan nito ang papel bilang kanlungan ng mga bayani at puso ng progresibong lalawigan ng Bulakan." - Senador Mar Roxas (Senate Bill 1986, Amending Section 57 of Republic Act No. 8754

Roads and Transportation

- the MacArthur Highway (or Manila North Road), a national road which stretches from Monumento in Caloocan City to Pangasinan. It traverses the city from Tabang, Guiguinto - Tikay, Malolos to Lungos, Malolos - Lungos, Calumpit.
- Plaridel-Bigaa road, a provincial road that connects
Quingua (Plaridel) and Bigaa (Balagtas). It tranverse the Plariel-Malolos

(Estrella Street and Bulacan-Balagtas road).
- Paseo del Congreso Road, a historic road that links Malolos City Proper "Bayan" and Malolos "Crossing"
- Malolos-Hagonoy road, a provincial road that connects the Malolos "Bayan" to the town propers of Paombong and Hagonoy.
- Bulihan Road, a provincial road that links Malolos "Bayan" to Bulihan and Longos (northern barangays in Malolos). It used to be the link toward Pampanga and northern provinces before MacArthur Highway was created.
- Gat. Blas Ople Diversion Road (formerly known as Catmon-Anilao-Bulihan Diversion Road). The road connects Barangay Catmon in Malolos City and Santo Niño in Paombong. It was created to make a short-cut from the Uptown "Crossing" to Paombong and Hagonoy, instead of taking Malolos-Hagonoy road in the "Bayan"
- Santo Cristo - Mabolo Diversion Road, a diversion road that serves as an option (short-cut) from the "Bayan" to reach the Highway. It links the F. Estrella Street in Santo Cristo and Lucero Street in Mabolo.
Through Tabang Spur Road entrance/exit (or Tabang Exit) in Guiguinto of North Luzon Expressway, it links the city to the "Metro" with the convenience of fast driving through the Expressway. Malolos City is only 40-50 minutes drive away to Balintawak in Quezon City.
Public TransportationThe Welcoming Arch of the City
Public transportation within the city, like in most of the urban areas in the Philippines, is facilitated mostly using inexpensive Tricycles, jeepneys, taxis, and buses. Motored boats (or "Bancas") are used to transport goods and bring people to the barangays (or islands), like Pamarawan, Babatnin and Masile) that can only be reached by boats.
Tricycles are used for short distances. It can take you to the parts of the barangays and subdivions with no jeepney routes.
Various jeepney routes also ply the roads between the city and neighboring cities and towns in Metro Manila (Cities of Valenzuela and Caloocan), in Bulacan (Paombong, Hagonoy, Plaridel, Pulilan, Calumpit, Guiguinto, Balagtas, Bocaue, Santa Maria, Marilao and Meycauayan City), and in Pampanga (Apalit and the City of San Fernando).
While the "FX" and "L300" van taxis, from their terminals, and Provincial Buses (Baliwag Transit, Royal Eagle and Victory Liner), which passes through the MacArthur Highway, can take you to key places in the "Metro" (Monumento in Caloocan City; Cubao in Quezon City; Divisoria in Manila; and Pasay City) and to northern provinces (Apalit, Guagua, San Fernando City in Pampanga; and as far as Olongapo City in Zambales).
The City has its unique PUJ (Public Utility Jeepney) service called "Karatig." The Karatig is a short, modified owner-type jeepney used as a public utility vehicle. It has three routes, from its terminal in Maunlad (Menzyland Homes) in Mojon, it ply through the Plaridel-Malolos road, then through the Provincial Capitol Compound (Provincial Hospital, Hiyas Convention, Capitol Building, etc.), and to the gates of Bulacan State University (Gate 2 and Centennial gate). When it reached the highway, the first route (original) is called "Deretso", take you to the Malolos Crossing, turn left to the Paseo del Congreso road (where you can find the famous Barasoain Church & Casa Real shrine), and it take you around the Basilica Minore and the City Proper (where you can find the City Hall, Public Market, and business establishments). The second route is called "Fausta", after exiting the capitol compound, it ply through the flyover at the Malolos Crossing, turn left to the Fausta Subdivision in Mabolo, and passes through the access road to the Malolos Public Market before entering the City Proper. The Last route called "Capitol-View Park", because after it enters to the highway, it turn to Capitol-View Park Subdivision (in front of the main gate of BulSU), passes through the small road along Catmon, San Gabriel (road at the back of Barasoain Church), and Caingin before it enters to the City Proper. After it take you around the City Proper, it goes back to the terminal to the same roads they passes through.
The bulk of water requirement of the city is being serve by the City of Malolos Water District (CMWD). Recently, the CMWD is now categorized as a "Large Water District", because it supplies clean water to the whole city and some barangays of Paombong. While some subdivisions have their own independent water supply system.
Power distribution in the city is being undertaken by the Manila Electric Company MERALCO.
