Ever find yourself dodging the tourists that clutter the sidewalks, getting that feeling you need to use the bathroom, and realizing you have no idea how to locate a public lavatory? Good news, folks, the Wall Street Journal has found an App that will solve your urgent problem. Tap your screen and you’re good to go.
Airpnp “offers access to more than 50 bathrooms in businesses and private homes around the city” at oh-so-affordable rates. The cost of soaking in a bathtub in The Bronx is only $2. For $9, you can rent access to a bathroom in the East Village “featuring multiple faucets.”
Travis Laurendine, founder of Airpnp, told the WSJ (5/16), “We are the crossover into the digital world of the bathroom experience”. He hinted a big deal is imminent–perhaps a tie-in with a company that makes toilet paper.
Private equity investors who read the WSJ are already banging on the door.
