CincyPHLUSH co-founder Justin Jeffre recently made news in WVXU when he spoke about using funds from the American Rescue Plan Act to increase public restroom availability throughout the Metro bus system.
Justin Jeffre co-founded a local chapter of the non-profit PHLUSH, which stands for Public Hygiene Lets Us Stay Human. He says the county has a lack of public restrooms.
“No matter what you do, it’s something we all share in common as human beings — we all have those most basic needs throughout our day.”
Jeffre hopes some of the ARPA funding can be used to build new public restrooms like the one added to Smale Riverfront Park about six years ago, especially along public transit routes.
