Cintas's Restroom Finder App helps users avoid 'stinky stalls' when nature calls
As Summer winds down and students head back to school, Cintas is reminding everyone about its free mobile restroom-finder app, 'Got to Go', which allows users to find washrooms in their vicinity and rate them based on cleanliness.
"People say there's only two things for certain in life, but we know of a third; the need to use the restroom," says John Engel, director of marketing, Cintas Corporation. "With more than half of Americans finding it difficult to locate a clean restroom while on the road, we hope to give travelers some added relief by helping them find not only a nearby restroom, but a clean one."
Within the 'Got to Go' app, users have two options:
Number One - Locate a nearby public washroom. App users will be shown a map with nearby washrooms differentiated by three colours: Top-rated, clean facilities are indicated with a green icon; low-rated, dirty establishments are indicated with a yellow icon; while the unrated are indicted by a blue icon. Users can also view washrooms in a 'list view' allowing them to see nearby facilities sorted by distance.
Number Two - Rate the condition of a public washroom. Users can rate the condition of the washroom (dirty or clean), supply level (low or well-stocked), smell (good or bad) and whether it's open to the public or available to customers only.
Additional features include the integration of Google Maps and Apple Maps, allowing users to get step-by-step directions to their facility of choice. Users can also filter the results by location, such as fuel and convenience stores; coffee shops and restaurants; retail stores; or government and public buildings.
The Cintas 'America's Best Restroom' contest nominees and winners are also integrated within Got to Go, so users can locate, view and visit some of the most memorable facilities from coast to coast.
Got to Go is available for complimentary download in the iPhone App Store or Android's Google Play.
