If you are one of many who run out of pokéballs because you don’t have a lot PokéStops or Gyms near you for Pokémon Go, then there is good news coming your way. Developer Niantic is now letting people submit requests for new ones.

You can visit this support page to file a request, where you can also submit a picture of the area you would like to see become a PokéStop or Gym. You can only request a business as a new location, not a home.

Niantic did not say what criteria it will use to determine whether or not it accepts a request or how quickly it might turn around an appeal. Whatever the case, this could be a boon for people who live in rural one horse towns.

You can also use the request form to let Niantic know if you think PokéStops or Gyms is located in a dangerous area or to report a PokeStop that exists on your personal property (Yes, that happened).
