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.

  1. 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)

  2. 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!!!

    1. 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 ???

      She’s too shy to advertise it … but I think that is awesome !!!

      The first global ambassador for the No Pants Subway Ride movement !
      Best of luck Remi. :)

  3. Does anyone know if Los Angeles is participating this year…also who to contact if they are… thanks

    1. I would like to know if there is one in Los Angeles as well.

    2. Facebook has the GLAImprov. They’ve got one going too that day. =] Check it out

  4. Please note that I added a request above for the lead organizer of each event to send us an email via our contact form. This is so we have an official contact for someone from each event so we can coordinate things a little smoother this year. If you want to be listed on our site, you’ll have to make sure you do this. Thanks!

  5. Hi guys!

    Shoqs will be organising a No Pants Subway Ride in Amsterdam, The Netherlands once again! Info will be posted on our website a.s.a.p. The Facebook-event can be found here:

    Have a great ride!


    1. Buenisimo!!
      A ponerse los calzoncillos graciosos y nos vemos en el subte!

  6. did you send out an email for this?? i havent gotten ANY since i joined somewhere in august. I think I may have signed up wrong. could someone please send me the instructions for signing up? Because after i get the confirmation letter, it says to respond with the subject as header intact. i did so, and im i right? please respond, as i really like improv everywhere and would like to participate, as i live in NYC.

  7. Didn’t anyone think that it would be smarter to have “No Pants Day” in May rather than January?

  8. Still waiting to see when the Los Angeles no pants day is going to be!!!

  9. Hey Everybody!

    Make sure to set your Facebook event public enough so those of us without a Facebook account can still see the details.


    – Nelz

  10. Can we wear a man thong? Could we be arrested for public indecency?

  11. Any one planning or wanting to do one in Dallas, TX? I think they did one last year.

    1. Do you live there? We’ve been invited to Design Indaba and will be staging an Mp3 Experiment and one other event (to be determined.) First time in Africa!

  12. Thanks to everyone who has sent me an email about their No Pants event. I will send out some official information to all the group leaders in the near future.

    If you are staging a No Pants event, remember to send me an email per the instructions in this post.

  13. I hope Calgary has one again this year. Please keep me posted… If not, I will have to fly to somewhere in the world ans find a ride!

  14. Thank you for making this available to all of us shomer shabbos people who have not been able to participate in past years!

  15. Hey, is anyone doing it in Paris ? I know I know, after what we saw today, with all the snow and stuff, you feel kinda chilly, but hey, it would be great to have one !

    So if anyone is starting one in Paris, let me know ;p

  16. About what time will this start? I’m definitely going to do it this year!

  17. I want to get Wellington, New Zealand in on this. I’ll have to work on a route and set up a facebook page…

  18. Minneapolis, Minnesota?
    I’ve always wanted to ride the Lightrail without my pants on. I mean, really. ;)

  19. Seems like São Paulo will be participating along with the rest of the world this year. It’ll during a hot hot summer, but hopefully in a somewhat fresher night. We will soon get in contact with details.

  20. Hey!!

    This sounds like a RIOT!!!

    Does anyone know if Halifax NS is doing one? I guess it would be on the bus system!!! ~ggls

  21. Don’t know if anyone has stepped forward for Montreal, but there are people here who’d love to see it happen.

  22. I think we really need one in Houston, Texas :)
    If there isn’t one already planned out.

  23. hey any event near Oklahoma City, Dallas, Kansas City ? PLZ let me know im dying to participate.

  24. 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?

    1. 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.)

  25. Hi! I am looking for info to participate in the no pants subway ride in New York City. Thanks :-)

  26. Is there an organizer for Atlanta? I want to participate, my gf too.

  27. I’m trying to get people in the Southeast Michigan / Northwest Ohio area to ride the Detroit People Mover on the 9th.

    Leave me a message here if you are interested. I will be putting something up on Facebook later today.

  28. Chicago??? The links posted are not to current information. Is there someone in charge of chicago yet? Is it scheduled? Willing to organize if no one has.

  29. I haven’t found anything for Chicago this year. If anyone has info, please post! Thanks :)
