Save The Date: No Pants! 2010

video from No Pants 2009

Details for New York
Details for other Cities

The 9th Annual No Pants! Subway Ride will take place on Sunday, January 10 in New York City. More info with the meeting point and start time will be posted to this site in early January. For now, save the date. You can RSVP on Facebook.

Once again we are encouraging folks in other cities around the world to stage their own No Pants rides on the same day. Here is the list of cities who participated last year. Anyone organizing a regional No Pants event should let us know by leaving a comment on this post along with all of the necessary details. In a few weeks we will publish a list of all participating cities along with links to any Facebook events. Groups have staged the event on trolleys, light rails, and buses in the past, so don’t let a lack of subway system stop you!

If you are unfamiliar with this tradition, you can read the history here: The No Pants Subway Ride.

  1. GuerilLA is organizing the No Pants ride in Los Angeles!
    Check out and up for the mailing list.
    Info for the ride will be sent within the next few weeks.

  2. For all those in and around the GTA:

    Improv in Toronto will again be running Toronto’s branch of the No Pants Subway Ride.

    Its always a massive blast with tons of welcoming, chilly people, and it’s the prime choice for people just getting into the Flash Mob “scene”.

    More details concerning where and when will be posted shortly on our website:

    We can’t wait to see how big our group will be this year!

  3. Finally an official date. Undecided if I should go pantsless, photograph the event or do both. You always say not to photograpgh but that’s kind of a lame restriction. Photography is who I am!

  4. Darn, thats just 2 days after I board the plane to go study abroad in London. I’ve looked at the previous years and London seems to be sadly missing from the listed cities.

    So… London: “No Trousers on the Tube 2010”

    Sound like a possibility to any Londoners?

  5. Tan says:

    Singapore is in

  6. Josh Weissbock says:

    I would be down for a Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada) no pants ride on the sky train.

    Anyone else from this area that would?

  7. Jesse says:

    Who wants to do it in Portland???
    I think it would be amazing!
    email me:

  8. Paul Klenk says:

    MINNEAPOLIS “No Pants Train Ride 2010,” on the Hiawatha Light Rail Line…

    Okay, Minnesota, it’s time for the Minne-Apple to show the Big Apple how these things are done!

    WE NEED ORGANIZERS* to lead several teams of pantsless Minneapolitans — in shifts — from the Mall of America to Nicollet Mall (and back).

    WE NEED VIDEOGRAPHERS to film each trip, then edit it and post it on YouTube.

    1. Join the Facebook page and mark your calendars.
    2. Share this event with everyone you know in Minneapolis and the surrounding area.
    3. Encourage them to do the same; we’d like this event to go viral!

    * I don’t live in Minneapolis anymore, but I’ve got lots of friends there, and would love to see “you guys” take this ball and run with it!

  16. Jessica says:

    Would there be any interest in Quito? Sin pantalones en el Trole??

  18. Cormac says:

    Does anyone want to organise one in Dublin? Maybe on the DART, or maybe the Luas? Get those Irish milk bottle legs out!

  19. This is the event last year that started ImprovAZ, so we’re all over it again this year!

    If you’re in Arizona and want to join us on the Light Rail, check us out at or ImprovAZ on Facebook. Details will be posted in both locations.

  20. Anne says:

    It’s time for the German capital to join the list of participants, so dear Berliners save the date – the city wants you pantless! :)

    To make this event BIG we still need:

    * organizers
    * people who film the event, edit the material and post it to YouTube, Vimeo etc.; photographers
    * people who are not afraid to travel pantless in public

    RSVP on the Facebook page and mark your calendars. Also, share this event with everyone you know in Berlin!

  21. Mike says:

  24. Stephanie says:

    Anyone in Detroit want to do this on the People Mover?

  25. Erika says:

    Is Baltimore anywhere on this list? Because I feel the inner harbor would be fun with no pants in the middle of January.

  26. Sandro Giunta says:

    And now…

    The No Pants Subway Ride

    IN ROME….!!

  27. BOSTONS TURN!!!!!!!
    ok, I’ve decided to start a facebook event so that we can all see how many people are willing to go pantless in Boston. I’m not much of a leader and will need help so if we can also have people who are willing to: organize and lead, Film and post on youtube, and go pantless participants :)

  28. Jen says:

    Is anyone doing this in DC!?!?! I live in NJ but I’m going back to Baltimore right before this and I really want to do it in DC if someone is organizing it!!!!!!!

  29. Ari says:

    We should definitely have one in Philadelphia. It sounds awesome.

  30. Liz says:

    Who’s down for Chicago?!!

  31. Brad says:

    Chicago is in

  32. The General Public says:

    Please, for the love of God, leave us alone. We just want a peaceful ride home. Please try and understand, we are clever enough and intelligent enough to find randomness and lightheartedness without you forcing it on us during our commute, while we’re shopping, while we’re eating. Those are the few moments in our lives that are supposed to be just for us, a small moment of escape and peace.

    Find a hobby, go volunteer, take an actual improv class — ANYthing to occupy yourselves and give you creative satisfaction that doesn’t involve annoying the piss out of everyone around you.

    Thank you.

    — John Q. Public

    • borderline pissed says:

      YEs. I hadn’t seen your post before I too posted something similar. But you, Mr. Pubic expressed it better than I ever could have.

    • Brave Soul says:

      You have ugly legs…don’t you?

    • Uh, yeah, the escape and peace you get in your regular (boring) commute home is what you get the other 364 days out of the year that we’re not forcing lightheartedness on you. That’s why we do it. And god, how awful to have to be forced to witness lightheartedness! The pain must be unbearable.

  33. Josh says:

    I’ll be setting it up in the eugene oregon area

  34. Frankie says:

    I’m in San Francisco and would love to participate! Either on BART or MUNI! Anyone else in?!

  35. Matthew Flaschen says:

    Atlanta’s Gobi Lumberjacks are in again this year! Our Facebook event is and our Ning page is at .

    Let’s make this even bigger than last year. :)

  36. scotty says:

    Portland Oregon will be in again!

  37. borderline pissed says:

    Someone care to enlighten me as to the point of this tomfoolery? Cause if it’s just to ride the subway pantless then it’s quite foolish, and frankly, inconsiderate to the everyday New Yorker trying to get from point A to point B. I suggest you limit this nonsense to the L line.

  38. Dimitri says:

    NYC last year was killer fun! It even snowed. People started making snow angels at union square park. There was also a scheduled meeting place ( BAR ) for all the attendees which made it easier to meet me some cool peoples.

  39. Heather says:

    I will begin organizing a facebook event for Philly, and get back to everyone with the details–unless someone else organizes one first!

    Totally going to do it this year! A couple of my friends and myself are game to do it in New York since we are all on vacation from school for it. I myself have to decide if I’m going to drop my pants or take pictures because I think it would be a fun event to photograph. I’d also be willing to help document with pictures for Improve Everywhere if they are looking for people to help with that.

    Can’t wait either way for No Pants 2010!
