The Toronto No Pants Subway Ride took place on Sunday, January 10th for the 3rd year running. All 350 participants took of their own pants and got onto the subway in only their underwear. Check out the video of the event, and then continue below to read more about it.
If you’re unfamiliar with the No Pants Subway Ride, it is quite simple. Once on the subway, one by one participants will take of their pants and place them in their back pack. At first they get weird looks, and a lot of people laughing at them. Each stop more and more participants begin taking off their pants.
This year we had a great turnout of 350 people, and met in the usual location of Queens Park. Once everyone had arrived, we quickly went over the details.

Riders than got onto the cars acting as they would on any normal day. After taking theirs seats, the real fun began. As each riders assigned stop arrived, the pants are finally taken off.

More and more pant-less riders continue getting on the train, until it becomes flabbergasting for many commuters.
With so many pantless riders, we had a number of themed costumes!

Finally upon arriving at Eglinton Station we then all got off, and switch trains to go southbound again.
The ride back was just as hilarious as the ride up, with tons of hilarious conversations and experiences.
The event was a huge success, with tons of great experiences. As always, we had a great time running it, and look forward to having an even better No Pants Ride next year!
