Already, Washington, D.C., can be a pretty spooky city, thanks to its many haunted locations and Halloween-decorated houses. When it comes to the city’s Metrorail, there are already enough reasons to avoid the transit system, but local blog Greater Greater Washington just made it even spookier.

D.C. area resident Peter Dovak, a graphic design contributor for Greater Greater Washington, designed a Halloween-themed Metro map for the blog, changing the station names from Huntington to “Hauntington,” from NoMa to “NoMan’s Land,” and from Fort Totten to “Fort Rotten.” Even the Metro points are redesigned with devil horns for the Red Line, a witch’s hat for the Green Line, and a pumpkin stem for the Orange Line. This quirky, creative map is perfectly spooktacular in all the best kinds of ways.
