Suit Up: The No Pants AZ Light Rail Ride Is Scheduled for This Weekend

A quick public service announcement: If you're not looking to share a bench and some quality skin time with a few pants-less commuters (and yes, they are just happy to see you), you might want to take the car on January 13.

The No Pants Light Rail Ride ride is organized by members of Improv Everywhere, the braintrust who brought you the train station flash mob, the mall santa musical, and hundreds of other "surprise" choreographed scenes in public places.

Participants of this year's ride, scheduled for Sunday, January 13, plan to occupy seats on all forms of local public transportation in their (hopefully new, clean, and full-coverage) underwear.

The pants-less crew will meet up around 1 p.m. at one of three starting points along the lightrail ( Sycamore/Main station in Mesa and riding to the Roosevelt/Central station, 38th St/Washington station and riding west to Thomas/Central station, and 19th Ave/Montebello station and riding east to 3rd St/Jefferson station).

If it's chilly and you prefer to wait until you get to the platform or in the light rail car to depants, organizers recommend you bring a backpack (for your pants). The mid-ride party will take over Angels Trumpet Ale House in downtown Phoenix in the afternoon, and the event's expected to wrap up around 4 p.m..

If it's anything like last year's event, we're sure to get an eyeful.

Stay tuned to the event website and Facebook event page for more information.

That's me in the photo above!  I should bring my Canon dSLR camera with me and take my own photos of the event.  At least I will be having fun along with everyone else participating.  Yes, we will be there...

Hope the PNT depants this year; it's creepy to be photographed by panted people.


Thanks for covering this! Though to clarify, the global event is organized by Improv Everywhere, but here in town it's Improv AZ that's doing the planning in Phoenix. They do other flash mobs around the Valley throughout the year as well.

This is a fun event, and so far we're on track for a pretty good crowd!


@dakra Glad to hear you'll be making a return appearance!


@devoncadams I, too, support the Phoenix New Times being the Phoenix No Trousers for a day.
