Who needs pants? Public transportation tradition continues with riders stripping down

Posted: Updated:
U.S. - Imagine getting on public transportation and no one’s wearing pants.  That's what subway riders in many cities were in store for Sunday.

It's all part of the ‘No Pants Metro Ride’ held every year across the nation.

Passengers board subway cars wearing normal clothing except for their lack of pants and act like nothing is unusual.

A New York improv comedy group created the event six years ago; it’s since spread to cities around the world.
