Google Maps Now Helps Find Public Toilets in Delhi-NCR, Madhya Pradesh
After successfully working with the Ministry of Urban Development, Google on Thursday announced that Google Maps has started showing people information about public toilets near them in Delhi-NCR and Madhya Pradesh. Not only this, Google is also adding location, address and opening hours of over four thousand communal and public restrooms to Google Maps.
The listing includes the Delhi NCR region including Ghaziabad, Gurugram, Noida, Faridabad and cities of Bhopal and Indore in Madhya Pradesh. Users can search for the nearest public toilet on Google Maps on Android, iOS, and desktop. The feature is available in both English and Hindi. Each public toilet listing when opened also features a star rating, helping determine whether the toilet is well reviewed by previous visitors.
Sanket Gupta, Product Manager, Google Maps, said, “When you search for “public toilet” on Google Maps in an area where the service is available, you’ll see a list of restrooms near you, including the respective address and opening hours. For instance, if you’re traveling on the national highway 8 in Gurugram, locating a public toilet can be challenging and most often the only option is going to nearby restaurants and cafes. Having this information handy can make things much easier.”
