Silicon Valley has reinvented the pay toilet. But this time, you have to use an app to get in, yielding metadata (foeterdata?) to the powers that be. Yield the who, what, when and where of your bowel movements with Good2Go, the shittiest valley startup yet. Their turd-key solution is free now, but you'll have to spend a penny later.
As photographed above by Christopher Kennedy (website), a developer from San Francisco: "Welcome to app hell. You need an app or a printed QR code to use the bathroom here. The app is “free for a limited time” so after that, I imagine they plan to disrupt pay toilets. Silicon Valley is a parody unto itself. You cannot democratize access to utilities by making a gated community of smartphone and subscriber users."
Find and securely access modern restrooms – all through your smartphone ...
Q: Do I have to pay for Good2Go if I’ve made a purchase at the café?
A: No. Café patrons can ask the barista for a QR code or download the app for free.
Q: How much does it cost to use the app?
A: All subscriptions to Good2Go are free for a limited time!
Q: Is Good2Go only available in San Francisco?
A: San Francisco is now live and we will be launching in other major cities soon. Want Good2Go in your city?
