I think that, depending on the context, abo is short for either

abonnÚs  (subscribers)


abonnement (subscription)

You will see the latter word all the time in ads on the Paris metro...

You may be thinking of 'arrondissement', which means district.

'Abo', however seems to refer to subscribers:
I knew the word, but it was always associated in their rDNS with the
names of french towns

Moral - never try to translate french when you know just about enough
to order your dinner / call a taxi :)
