Yes, SLUT is a real coporate slut, feeding on the teet of the taxpayers for corporate pleasure. You are a whory little slut SLUT!! Just look at you slutting around providing an unrealistic mass transit option for a small protion of the population! Yes, you are a slutty slut SLUT!!!

Fresno CA almost made the same goof when revamping the local buses to be more like a big city.

Fresno Area Rapid Transit wasn't the best idea for a name though.

Not anymore

Gold Coast Transit (Formerly South Coast Area Transit)

What will SLUT's new name be?

Vulcan Investment Agency

Gross. I'd rather ride the SLUT.

Well, we did have a lot of seamstresses when we were growing from a small place into a city ...

Sounds right up your "alley", Dan.

I grew up riding SCAT too, in Santa Barbara county (California). South Coast Area Transit, I believe...

NO ONE beats Kentucky tho, for kick-ass names. I visited the state once; the only thing I remember is the bus system: TANK. Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky.

WTF? How does TANK beat SLUT?

Posted by Carollani | September 24, 2007 4:49 PM

We like to call it The Scatilac.

SCAT also stands for Sarasota County Area Transit, where I grew up. Amazingly, as a kid I don't think the bus system was the butt of many jokes (um, so to speak), 'cause nobody actually *rides* the bus there.

In Canberra (in the Australian Capital Territory), they have the Australian Capital Territory Internal Omnibus Network (ACTION). Whoever thought of that one deserves a medal.

The college I went to was previously the Western Australian Institute of Technology & Commerce (WAIT & C), before becoming just WAIT. When it became a university, it was originally going to be called the Curtin University of New Technology (CUNT), until someone spotted the problem, and dropped the 'new'.

Do I win five dollars?

That's pretty shitty transit.
