Can't Find a Public Bathroom in NYC? Hail This Toilet Van

What to Know

  • Charmin is hailing the van as the first ever on-demand mobile bathroom service in New York City
  • It made stops at Columbus Circle, Herald Square and Bryant Park Wednesday and comes to Rock Center Thursday
  • Anthony Anderson of the TV series "Blackish" has been accompanying the van

Toilet paper company Charmin has been rolling an on-demand mobile bathroom called Charmin Van-GO around Manhattan as part of a two-day pilot program -- though whether the intent is to make the Uber-style bathroom service a regular option, we're not entirely sure. 

Anthony Anderson of the TV series "Blackish" has been accompanying the van on its trips to Columbus Circle, Herald Square and Bryant Park. On Thursday, the van hit Lincoln Center from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., then Rockefeller Center from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. and the High Line from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
