Yet another reason to bring back the Rochester Subway… We’re missing out on No Pants Day! Hundreds of New Yorkers stripped down to their skivvies on Sunday for the ninth annual No Pants Subway Ride. The event, organized by a Guerilla group called Improv Everywhere, has grown from 7 or 8 people riding the NY Subway in 2002 to over 3,000 people taking part in 44 cities and 16 countries around the world.
Based in New York City, Improv Everywhere uses the web to encourage other cities to get in on the fun. A call-to-action on their site reads, “If your town has a subway system or some form of mass transportation (bus? trolley?), then get involved and organize your own ride.” All you have to do is create a Facebook event and post a link to it in the comments and the group promises to promote your event on their site .
Other cities with pantless transit riders this weekend included Buffalo, Toronto, Pittsburg, Chicago, Los Angeles, Honolulu, London, Madrid, Stockholm, Sydney, and Tokyo. So why wasn’t Rochester on the list? We may not have a subway but we’ve got buses. Yesterday’s high temp… 27°F. Excuses, excuses.
