Commuters Brave Chilly Weather In "No Pants Subway Ride"

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of Philadelphians crowded the Broad Street line sans-pants in participation with Improv Everywhere's annual "No Pants Subway Ride" event.

Participants gathered at Broad and Arch St. at 3p.m. for the 2 hour event in which Philadelphians braved the chilly weather and rode the Broad Street Line as a collective.

Improv Everywhere is a New York City-based "Prank Collective" that hosts the event in 60 regions across 25 countries every year. SEPTA has participated in the event in the past, and stated that they are aware of today's event. They're fine with it as long as participants are not over-exposed or graphic.

No Pants Subway Ride started in 2002 in New York City, but has gained spread quickly across the years and now takes place in 60 cities from Philadelphia to Shanghai and beyond!

Sunday's ride started at 3pm when participants walked from the meeting point, Broad and Arch Sts, to City Hall to catch the southbound Broad Street Line. They rode the line to AT&T Station and transferred northbound, back to City Hall, then onto the Market-Frankford Line towards Frankford. The event ended at Frankford Transportation Center around 5p.m.

According to the event's facebook page, the rules are as follows:

1. No pants, please.

2. Act normal, bring a book if you want.

3. If someone asks, just say you "forgot your pants" and yeah, maybe you are "a little cold"

4. No indecent exposure; wear underwear! This isn't the Naked Bike Ride!
