After years of working on this idea, i have finally managed to launch an App GottaGo, to Find a Restroom near you.
The idea was born when we recognized the importance of finding a clean restroom when traveling within the city for shopping or simply hanging out with friends and family. With increasing commutes, traffic and lack of clean public infrastructure, travelers often find themselves searching for a restroom nearby.
We started a website that listed information of restrooms, area-wise on a website called p911.in back in 2010. With the smartphone medium, the experience got better with detecting the location of the user using GPS and then directing the user through navigation that they are already familiar with.
When we created the first version of the app and circulated it among friends, we got great feedback. Especially women, with young children, found locating a clean and hygenic restroom at their fingertips a huge boon.
We had a few evangelists in every city go and check out these places before we listed them. We also built user feedback into the app which allows users to rate the options provided once they use the facility. They can also let us know if a restroom isn’t working any more or is shutdown.
GottaGo currently lists over 10,000 restrooms mapped across malls, hotels, hospitals, restaurants, railway stations, museums, etc.
The app is currently available on the Google Play Store and will soon be available on the Apple App Store. The service is currently available for users in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai and plans to expand to other cities over time.
Do download it, give it a go and send your feedback.

If you like it do share it, if you have feedback, i am all ears.
