While Los Angeles is often in the spotlight for being the home of TV stars, gorgeous beaches, and other tourist attractions, there’s an important aspect of the city life that receives far too little attention: the availability of public restroom facilities. All Site Rentals have compared LA to 6 other major US cities, revealing a jarring disparity in public restroom accessibility. 

Key Points:

  • Los Angeles, with a population of 3.849 million, boasts only 14 permanent public restrooms, leaving a staggering ratio of 1 restroom per 274,929 people.

  • Comparatively, other major US cities like New York and Chicago offer significantly more public restrooms per capita, with ratios as low as 1 restroom for every 5,394 people.

  • Compared to San Diego’s ratio, LA needs 820 additional public restrooms. This would require a minimum investment of $65.6 million to construct enough permanent public restrooms to meet the demand.

  • Opting for porta potty rentals from All Site Rentals would cost LA $114,800 per month for 820 units, shedding light on the city's overpayment for temporary solutions.


All Site Rentals has calculated the ratio of public restrooms per population in the following US cities to unveil a stark reality.

With a quick search on social media you’ll notice visitors and residents alike commenting on the difficulty of finding public bathrooms in the city. Most mentioned having to pay a fee to enter business-owned restrooms and “fast-food-tax” to use restaurant toilets. While most residents may be able to get by, one can intuit the implications this arrangement has on visitors, people suffering from homelessness, and even someone who forgot their wallet that day.

We're committed to shedding light on this pressing issue and eager to collaborate on potential solutions. For further insights into the LA restroom crisis, please don't hesitate to reach out. We can be reached at (818) 960-1941 or info@allsiterentals.com.
