Navigate The Inauguration Port-A-Potty Shortage With SitOrSquat Restroom Finder App

Stocks in this article: PG

Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG):

WHAT:

     

Following reports citing a shortage of port-a-potties secured for the President’s Monday inauguration, Charmin encourages attendees to download the SitOrSquat app to find clean, public restrooms near the steps of the Capitol building. SitOrSquat by Charmin is a free mobile app available for iPhone®, iPod Touch® and Android™ that consists of user-generated content and currently contains more than 125,000 restrooms across the country.

 
Those in attendance of the President’s public swearing-in can use the SitOrSquat app to find restrooms in the area, or even populate the database with new found locations. The app also allows users to find restrooms equipped with specific features, such as changing tables and handicap access.
 

WHERE:

Steps of the Capitol building

E. Capitol St. and First St. NW, Washington, DC.
 

WHY:

According to recent news reports, 600,000 – 800,000 people are expected to attend the inauguration, but only 1,500 port-a-potties will be available to the public. To avoid waiting in long port-a-potty lines, SitOrSquat can help visitors find public restrooms to ‘enjoy the go’ during this historic occasion!

 

HOW:

SEARCH and VIEW public restrooms nearest your current location on a map or in a list.

MAP results with an interactive, location-based map.

REGISTER using Facebook Connect to Rate, Add, Upload Pictures, and Bookmark bathrooms.

RATE restrooms by choosing “Sit” (you enjoyed the bathroom) or “Squat” (it could be better) and provide your relevant experience and honest opinions, including pictures.

ADD public restrooms to the database by entering basic location information and optional details like pictures and features.

FILTER results by choosing specific features such as Open Now, Sit-or-Squat Rating, Family Bathroom, Baby Changing Table, Handicap Accessible, or Pay-Per-Use toilets.
