UPDATE: Details for NYC / Details for other cities
The 10th Annual No Pants Subway Ride will take place on Sunday, January 9 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. The lead organizer must also send us an email via our contact form. 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! 44 cities participated last year. Check the list linked above to see if one happened in your city last year before trying to start your own (preference will go to the prior year’s organizers.)
If you are unfamiliar with this tradition, you can read the history here: The No Pants Subway Ride.
The event page for DC this year is here:
Melbourne Australia will be happily participating once again.
We are more ready than ever! Had almost a month now of snowy, chilly weather to practise. Lots of eager people have their pants already half way down.
We will definitely beat last years 8 participants and all time high in Stockholm. (Our very first NoPant Ride was 2010)
No Pants Bike Ride/Public Transportation Ride. Either in Amsterdam (anybody else started it yet?) or in Maastricht in the southern tip of the Netherlands.
Let me know if you’re interested!!!
Netherlands is in: http://www.shoqs.nl/zondag-9-januari-de-broekloze-metrorit-2011/
Charlie – Please be aware Remi is participating in her 3rd different country this time !!!
First was NY, then with us in Sydney and now in Amsterdam – Has anyone else achieved this feat ??? I’m sure we have International No Pants-ers, but THREE cities ???

The first global ambassador for the No Pants Subway Ride movement !
Best of luck Remi. :)
That’s pretty impressive!

Hello Los Angeles and welcome to the 3rd Annual No Pants Metro Ride!
Ride the train just as anyone would on any given normal day, just without pants (note that this is NO PANTS day, not NO UNDERWEAR day. We don’t want anyone arrested for indecent exposure). We’d like to emphasize the importance of acting casual – like pantslessness is a normal thing – and acting like you do not know any of your fellow riders nor why they are also pantsless. More info to come . .
Facebook has the GLAImprov. They’ve got one going too that day. =] Check it out

Didn’t anyone think that it would be smarter to have “No Pants Day” in May rather than January?
It wouldn’t be as funny.
I’ve never understood why people think No Pants in the summer would be anywhere near as funny and clever as the middle of winter, yet I get asked it all.the.time.
Still waiting to see when the Los Angeles no pants day is going to be!!!
I m love Improv Everywhere ;)
litchfield beach sc? anyone?
Make sure to set your Facebook event public enough so those of us without a Facebook account can still see the details.

Anyone in chicago?
Can we wear a man thong? Could we be arrested for public indecency?
Would love to sync up the time with NYC but would need a tentative time well in advance since we need to coordinate with the police and reserve venue space for afterward.

For New York City, there seems to be less people will participate this year than last year. Last year almost 7000 responded attending on fb, this year the # has not reached 5000. Is it possible the event will loss its popularity in the near future?
Pretty crazy that an event that has been promoted with one email, one blog post, one tweet, and two facebook updates only has 4700 RSVPs on Facebook.
(Patience, James. It’s 12 days away.)
Meeting point: Parque da Luz entrance (in front of Estação da Luz)
We’ll meet there at 2pm to start organizing and going out at 4pm.
