Shanghai's first unisex toilet opens in November

Updated 2016-10-27 10:03:17 Global Times

The first unisex public toilet in Shanghai will be put to trial use starting mid-November in Pudong New Area, thepaper.cn reported. The lavatory will be located in a public park on Pudong South Road, catering to visitors there.

According to a staff member from Shanghai City Appearance and Environment Quality Monitoring Center, the toilet was made unisex because the authority was unsure which gender would be more likely to use it.

In order to ensure the people's safety, the authority will hire workers to supervise its operations. The officer also revealed that this is a trial measure that will hopefully solve Shanghai's problem of unequal toilet service.

The authority will accept feedback from citizens after they use the toilet. Shanghai also will build 200 more public latrines that can be shared by family members. By June of 2017, Shanghai expects to have 105 such family toilets being enjoyed by the public.
