Buc-ee's Restrooms to Receive Technology Upgrade in Coming Months

Posted By on Fri, Nov 30, 2018 at 12:47 PM

The cleanest restrooms in America are getting an upgrade, y'all.

Buc-ee's, the Texas-based travel center chain that's worshipped by locals, recently announced it will instal Tooshlights, a light sensor that lets visitors know which stalls are available. The chain said the move is to reduce potty wait times.

The lights will be placed over each stall door and connected with the latch. They'll show green if the door is unlocked and not in use, and red when occupied.

Tooshlights will first be installed at the Buc-ee's locations in Katy and Temple. Officials said all new locations will feature the lights while existing locations will receive them in coming months.

Those kind of innovative services help explain why, in January, the chain was voted the best gas station in the country in a Gas Buddy survey.
