No Pants Metro Ride Takes Off Again

Bottom's up on the Expo Line!

Cheeky riders hang out on the Expo Line.

Discover LA by Metro:

Bottoms Up on the Red Line and Expo Line!

On January 8th, 2016, the 9th Annual No Pants Metro Ride travels from Union Station to Santa Monica, starting at 1 pm.

Started by New York City provocateurs Improv Everywhere in 2002, No Pants subway, tram, and metro rides now happen in at least 32 cities in North America, Australia, and Europe, from Adelaide to Zurich, and even in Jerusalem.

tongva-park-mapGuerilLA is organizing this year’s event, which starts at Union Station and travels on the Red Line and the Expo Line to the Santa Monica Station, where participants will gather at nearby Tongva Park, a short stroll from the station, then go to an afterparty. While traveling without pants is not illegal, going totally bottomless violates the law and is strongly discouraged.

Participants will meet in the north or south patios and travel in six groups, assigned by the first letters of their last names, and will depart at staggered times to avoid overloading the trains. See the GuerrilLA instructions page for details including meeting times and locations.

We traveled last year with a group from the Culver City Station to Union Station, where we met with other groups and moved on to the Hollywood/Highland Station. The atmosphere was festive, and the expressions of passengers and passersby were delightful.

Here are a few photos from last year:
