Almost 200 Brisbanites ditched their dacks for the seventh annual No Pants Subway Ride on Sunday.
The global event, which began with seven members of the Improv Everywhere group in New York in 2002, sees daring commuters remove their pants and skirts for a trip around their city’s railway line.
The Brisbane leg of the event, which has been running every year since 2009, took place as the Gold Coast train left Central Station just after 3pm on Sunday (10 January).
“The feedback from the ride was very positive,” says Brisbane No Pants Subway Ride organiser Adam Spencer, “and everyone had fun. There were a few regular passengers on the train who had heard of the New York ride, so figured out what was going on pretty quickly, and on the other side of the coin, there were many passengers who had no idea what was going on, and had a good laugh when people stood up and started taking their pants off.”
Adam says the ride attracted “a diverse crowd, ethnically and culturally, and many interesting outfits”, and was “completely incident free”.
Organisers work closely with Queensland Police and Queensland Rail in advance of the event to ensure it doesn’t cause concern to other passengers riding the train.
