This has to be intentional, right?

Like if they’d name it anything else no one would mention it or remembered it.

No I 100% believe they just fucked it up like that because they’re goddamned morons.

Nice work, Florida, Colorado, Georgia, et. al.

Can confirm, Florida is full of morons. I used to live in Melbourne Florida, and the local bus service is the Space Coast Area Transit. It took me a while before I noticed what the acronym should be, and it's pretty obvious why I never saw it used anywhere. It was an accurate description of their public transit, too.
