If you are driving, you are constantly looking for a place to go. As a female this can be extra challenging especially when Aunt Flo comes to visit. Either way you always want to know Where to Go on the Go (& Apps to find Restrooms Traveling) so here are some great tips to keep things running smoothly. Did you see what I did there?
Use Your Own Navigation Apps
First, if you are using Waze, Google Maps or some other navigation system, make places in your apps favorites to navigate to when you are in the area.
For example, some good restrooms to use are: Starbucks, McDonalds or La Madeleine.
No, I don’t feel bad about using restrooms of business I frequently patronize.
Buc-cee’s is my favorite because, their bathrooms are awesome! Sadly, this is a Texas convenience store; if you haven’t been to one you should.
Simply search for the places you feel comfortable going and use the search bar in your navigation system.
Places to Go Near the IAH TNC Staging Area
I also have my favorite gas stations near the IAH airport to avoid the “women drivers only” porta potty at IAH staging area for Uber/Lyft drivers. You can find other tips and trick to driving for Uber/Lyft here.
- The best gas station near the queue is the Shell off highway 59/69 at the Will Clayton Parkway exit.
- The second most convenient gas station is the Shell at Kenswick Dr. between the two Parking Spot lots on Will Clayton Parkway.
Apps to find Restrooms Traveling
Here are a few apps that were created just to help you find a place to go on the go. All of them are free to Google/Android and Apple users except one, which is only $0.99 for Apple users; it has over 2M locations worldwide!YOU CAN DRIVE WITH ME: Uber:https://www.partners.uber.com/i/4mhdrru3t / Invite code: JULIEC1866OUE .

You can get this app for Apple or Android. I like this one because, users rate the restrooms (and it has a 4.4 star rating in the apps store)! It was created by Charmin and I love their toilet paper, so yes. You will find a lot of Starbuck locations and the like.
Got to Go Restroom Finder/Wheretowee.com
This app is only available to Apple users; it has a 4.4 star rating also. You can also share your location on social media if your friends need to know.
Available for $0.99 for Apple users. As mentioned above, this app includes over 2 MILLION restrooms worldwide – including restaurants and public restrooms.
Whether you are an Uber/Lyft, over the road driver or just planning to be on the road away from the comforts of your own restroom you can search popular restaurants or gas stations you use. Or simply download any of the four restroom finder apps above to find a place to go on the go!
