It would be super helpful if we could put in the names people actually use to describe the stations or at least the part of a name that comes before or after a dash mark. Instead of having to type exactly, character for character "College Park-U of Md" - "College Park" or "University of Maryland" or "U of Md" should all be accepted. I lived by that station for 4 years and didn't get it on this quiz - nobody calls that school "U of Md," except WMATA.
A couple of options for things you may (or may not) wish to allow. There are a few stations that I almost never hear people say the full name of, so maybe consider accepting Dupont (Circle), Grosvenor (Strathmore), Largo (Town Center), Rhode Island (Avenue), Van Dorn (Street), Mount Vernon (Square), and PG Plaza (for Prince George's.) A few others that I use though I can't say for sure how widely used they are, are Chinatown (for Gallery Place), Catholic University (for Brookland), Howard University (for Shaw) and New York Ave (for NoMa). Feel free to ignore any and all of this, except for the congrats for creating a fun quiz!
I'm wondering if you could accept Chinatown for Gallery Place. I blanked on the first part. https://wmata.com/rider-guide/stations/gallery-place.cfm
Just an FYI though: Metro's changed some of the station names as stated here, so you may want to update the quiz to represent both the new official names and the older names that are likely to stay in use alongside the new names.
