Name Ottawa's downtown tunnel

There's a great idea over on the OttawaStart blog to come up with names for Ottawa's far-off yet closer-than-ever downtown tunnel for light-rail transit. It seems city planners are moving forward with the "DOTT Train" (Downtown Ottawa Transit Tunnel), but I think we can do better.

So let's hear your ideas. We at PTIO will unilaterally adopt the best suggested name and move forward with it in future articles, so give us your best!

Thanks for linking to our post on OttawaStart, much appreciated. Some good ideas here too. We'll compile a list & blog about it in the next week or so.

LOOT - Ludicrously Overpriced Ottawa Transit

it will become the "o-tunnel", but i like "the hole" better because we can make lotsa jokes about digging ourselves deeper into the hole.

DOTT seems fine. I just don't think I will use it often.
