That's the first time I ever saw "TR" as the abbreviation for a day of the week... do you think that's meant to be Thursday or do they have a different calendar in that country?

I doubt if they mean Thursday by 'TR' as they already have T for that. 'TR' fits more for train. It seems like university/office campus and I think 'bear' is used as verb here.

Edit :- Ah! Mark did mention that it is university.

TR clearly stands for Thursday here, but yeah, I've always seen it abbreviated TH.

I've also seen "R" for Thursday when they only want one letter.

Now the important question: which stop is closest to the only Chick-Fil-A in Michigan?

It is 5 minutes walk from that Bear stop that I pictured. Although it is closed during the summer. It is actually a Chick-Fil-A Express.

That stop pictured is the one next to Elliot Hall, the Black star above it is where the Chick-Fil-A stop is, in the Oakland Center.
