13th Annual “No Pants” BART Ride Day
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
The 13th Annual No Pants Subway Ride will take place on Sunday, January 12, 2014 in San Francisco.
The whole point is for 600+ people to ride BART (and then Muni) without any pants (wearing interesting undies and colorful socks) and to keep a straight face and act completely normal.
The event which takes place in over 15 countries around the world is hosted by prank collective Improv Everywhere.
2014 No Pants BART Ride Day
Sunday, January 12, 2014 | 1-5 pm
FREE (but BART fare is required)
RSVP on Facebook
Bring: Backpack and clipper card or money for BART/Muni
Wear: Normal clothes on top (no nudity… wear colorful or fun undies)
How to Act: Just act completely normal – just pretend you’re going about your day… just not wearing any pants. You do not know any of the other pantless riders. If questioned, tell folks that you “forgot to wear pants” and yes you are “a little cold.” Insist that it is a coincidence that others also forgot their pants. Be nice and friendly and normal.
San Francisco [Balboa Park]: Corner of Ocean & San Jose BART SIDE @12:50
East Bay [MacArthur BART]: AT or before 12:55 to transfer to Pittsburg/Bay Point Train
City Hall: For those who choose not to take BART a third group will be getting on Muni Trains jumping on and off them. Non BARTer can all choose to congregate at City Hall on the front steps at NOON (dont be late, but we wont leave for a few minutes after that.) This group will depart BEFORE 12:30
HOW IT WORKS:
Participants will board the BART train WITH NO PANTS and with an intended final destination of the Yerba Buena Gardens at about 1:50pm.
Choose any station of your choice to board. BOARD with no pants and ride to the Montgomery Station
*Make sure you are at Montgomery Station @ 1:26pm/1:27pm
- Those who arrive @ 1:26pm/1:27pm at the Montgomery Station, proceed off of BART, then head towards the South of Market Exit (towards 3rd Street).
- At the surface, head South on Market (towards 3rd street)
- Our meeting point is Yerba Buena Gardens. This is where I’ll be addressing everyone and most likely taking a picture.
- Take a left towards Yerba Buena Gardens between buildings (Yerba Buena Lane)
*Late arrivers who exit at Powell after first train* We are planning to be at Yerba Buena until 1:50ish
