A pay toilet is a public toilet that requires the user to pay. It may be street furniture or be inside a building, e.g. a shopping mall, department store, petrol station or railway station. The reason for charging money is usually for the maintenance of the equipment. Paying to use the toilet can be traced back almost 2000 years, to the first century AD. *
