Yelp will help you find businesses with gender inclusive restrooms

Posted by Customer Support on 8th Mar 2017

Yelp will soon be able to tell you about a new aspect of restaurants and businesses that is often overlooked: whether its restrooms are gender inclusive.

The company is rolling out a new feature that will identify businesses that have "gender-neutral restrooms," similar to how it identifies establishments that are wheelchair accessible or accept credit cards.

With the update, Yelp will officially add "gender-neutral restroom" to its list of business attributes, which appear on a business' page, alongside their hours, reviews and other details. Yelp says it defines these restrooms as those that are "accessible to persons of any gender and are a locking, single-stall bathroom."

As with other updates that rely on user-generated information, it will take some time before the information can be added to the page of each business but the company is now collecting the data from users and business owners.

Beginning today, "gender-neutral restroom" will appear as one of the categories when you check in at an establishment or write a review. Business owners can also fill in the information for their own listings.
