No Pants Train Ride
WARNING: This is only for people who love a laugh, like having a bit of fun, and don’t take themselves too seriously!
I’m guessing that if you are looking at this page, you are wondering whether the No Pants Train Ride for 2013 is on in Brisbane? Well IT IS!
More information, including meeting point and logistics can be found here:
Do you have a few hours free on Sunday 13th January 2013, and, like us, think pants are over-rated and should be hidden away like the annoying thing they are, oh and plus you like the idea of catching a train without pants along with a bunch of others just for the sake of it? Think it’d be cool to give unsuspecting commuters something random to laugh at and talk about?
Then we want you!!!! And your friends too!!!!
In short, we plan to converge, catch various trains, remove our various pants and feel the liberating rush of catching public transport without pants !
More info will come as we get closer to the date… And oh yes, you must wear underpants!

The No Pants Subway Ride is a global event started by Improv Everywhere in New York in 2002. Check http://www.improveverywhere.com! This will be the 12th year they’ve done it, so get amongst this global thing! Check out this video below of our friends in New York doing theirs in 2012. Over 5000 people participated!
So what do I need on the day ???
* A valid ticket MUST be purchased prior to the ride or GO CARD with enough funds on it to travel across multiple zones – THIS IS NOT NEGOTIABLE.
* A small bag or backpack – To put your pants and valuables in.
* An item to keep you occupied – Book. iPod. Mobile. Laptop.
I HAVE QUESTIONS!!
Read these ones from our valued listeners! Or post them on the event wall on facebook!
“So whats the difference between swimmers and underpants“…. Not alot really when you think about it these days.. “So why can’t i wear swimmers then?“.. Swimmers.. In public.. Well that’d just be weird now, wouldn’t it!
“Can i wear a skirt?” – well yes, as long as it comes off too, cause thats not playing fair for all those who wore pants! Underpants only friends!
“What train(s) do i have to catch and where do I get off?” – We will be providing you with a Guide which will tell you which trains to catch and when to get off and where at the briefing on the day,
“How will I know when to take my pants off?” – We will give you this information on the day at the briefing.
“Is there an after party?” – Most likely. We will advise closer to the date where.
“Can i take my shirt off too?” – No. Taking your shirt off could be portrayed as though you are stripping, and we want to keep this as far away from a appearing as a public nuisance as possible.
“What should i do while i am riding the train?” – Again, thats up to you. Most people in the past have read magazines and books, played hand held gaming devices, used their phones, and so on. You want to give the impression that you are doing something that is normal, so don’t do anything that you normally wouldn’t do while travelling on the train.
If you have any other questions, post them on the facebook event wall, we will attempt to answer them there and here.
So tell all your friends you had plans with to forget that and come with you to this! Come and feel the rush of the cool air between your knees!
What do we need from you?
Lock this date in! We’ll let you know the exact details between 48 and 72 hours prior to the event!
What we CAN tell you so far is this:
1. You will be travelling between 1 to 2 zones on the Translink network.
2. You will be invited to post-ride activities in your pantslessness if you choose to come along
3. A Briefing will be given by Agents on the day at Central on where we will be going!
4. There WILL be an after party, we will announce it closer to the day.
