How do I add a Pokestop to an area that has none? It is an area where there are tons of businesses but unless I drive about a mile from my work area there are no Pokestops.
I want to add one since we have 1000's of people in the work area, a lot of them play Pokemon Go, and we all can't leave work to drive a mile away to get to a Pokestop area.
Plus it would be nice to be able to capture Pokemon on our breaks.

PokeStops were originally ported over from Niantic's old game, Ingress. For a few days, you could request to have a PokeStop added
by opening a support ticket with Niantic. As of now, the page for requesting a PokeStop is closed, and it is unknown if it will ever open again.

It appears it's now possible to submit PokéStop nominations upon reaching
level 38. The guidelines for such can be found on Niantic's support site, but essentially:
First, go to an object or location that you think would make a good PokéStop.
Tap the Main Menu button.
Tap the Settings button.
Tap the New PokéStop button to start the nomination process.
Ensure your PokéStop is a good enough landmark (
see link for guidelines) for it to be included, and you're highly likely to be marked as eligible.
