Imagine, you are on a long road journey and in a dire need to answer nature's call, but don't know where the next closest 'public' loo is? Or you are travelling with children and stuck in a traffic jam for hours, and you hear the dreaded, "Are we there yet?", but unable to locate a restroom nearby. Well, these experiences can be extremely unpleasant. But now you needn't worry anymore, as a new app GottaGo is your new toilet-seeking superhero!

Brainchild of entrepreneur and tech whiz Kunal Sheth, GottaGo is a free app that helps you locate nearby public restrooms with just the tap of a button on your smartphone screen. The minute you press the button, restrooms are displayed on a map with the distance from your location along with the directions of how you can reach the place.

This innovative idea struck the founders when they analysed that with the increasing hours spent commuting, being stuck in traffic jams and a lack of clean public infrastructure, travellers often find themselves getting stressed 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", said Kunal Sheth.

When Kunal created the first version of the app and circulated it among friends, he got great feedback. Especially women, with young children, found locating a clean and hygienic restroom at their fingertips a huge boon.

Kunal further added, "With the growing risk of infectious diseases such as urinary tract infection or other infections, we wanted to only list the cleanest options available."

And with the help of a few evangelists in every city GottaGo came out with a list of cleanest restrooms available in the areas. Currently, GottaGo lists over 10,000 restrooms mapped across malls, hotels, hospitals, restaurants, railway stations, museums etc.

Currently, the app is available on the Google Play Store and will soon be available on the Apple App Store. This service can be used buy the app users in Mumbai, Pune, Delhi NCR, Bangalore, Chennai. And over the time, GottaGo is also planning to expand this to other cities as well
So before your embark on your next trip, make sure you download this app first.
