The annual No Pants Subway Ride event is a day where people ride the subway while they are not wearing pants. The event is organized by Improv Everywhere, and has coordinators in cities around the world. The first No Pants Subway Ride began with seven riders in 2002 in New York City. In 2006, 150 people participated in New York City. During that event, eight were handcuffed for disorderly conduct, but the charges were later dismissed. For 2013, sixty cities had coordinators.
