A SATYR TWIN : TRANSITWAY anagram map

A similar thing was done on the London Underground and other transit systems, so I thought I'd have some fun and mangle the Transitway map.

How well do you know the system? Can you guess the stations off the bat? OK, if you must cheat, look it up on the official site

ROFL

Some are surprisingly apt - e.g. 'Gasolene' for the Eagleson Park&Ride. And then there is 'Cum Spa' for Campus... you're going to get in a lot of trouble some day!

^ "Rusty Senate Plan" works fairly well for Tunney's, too.

Why didn't you do the downtown inset, out of curiosity? Not enough to do with Bay?

Bay can be Aby and Yab.

You should have anagrammed the other words, like Ottawa and Not To Scale.

Holy Christ, did someone kill your pet and eat it or something? You seem to be stuck on the permanently bitter button...

If he is a Brit, he's probably an ex- or failed (or both) tabloid headline writer.
