Toilet Sharing Service Creates Public Restrooms In People’s Homes

Toilet Sharing Service Creates Public Restrooms In People’s Homes

AirPnP connects people to owners of bathrooms looking to make some money.

AirPnP lets people rent out their private bathrooms to others who are looking for a quick relief, namely during crowded events or in areas where public bathrooms are non-existent. It’s a witty spinoff of AirBnb; but instead of offering lodging and large venues for hire, the app looks to offer a more favorable alternative to stationed Port-A-Potties, which almost always see a never-ending line wrapped around.

Launched just in time for this year’s Mardi Gras, the site has already grown to more than 1,200 sign-ups for its peer-to-peer service. Site visitors can choose to “Find a place to pee” or “Add a place to pee.” For those people offering a bathroom to rent, they can upload pictures of their facility, indicate the location and name a price. On the other spectrum of things, people paying for services can rate their overall pee experience by measuring the cleanliness of the bathroom or the quality of the toilet paper.

All of the restrooms are located along the announced Mardi Gras parade route, and can cost as much as $5 per visit – but desperate times call for desperate measures right?

Payments can be made through the app, but it appears that most renters seem to prefer cash.
