15 photos of the pant-free flashmob on the TTC

Posted by Derek Flack / January 13, 2014

pants free subway ride torontoThe annual No Pants Subway Ride took place this weekend in almost 60 cities across the world, including here in Toronto where hordes of pantless passengers hit up the TTC at Downsview Station much to the bemusement of their fellow riders. The turnout this year was far better than in 2013, and you can bet that the 200 some odd folks who decided to drop their slacks were thankful for temperatures that were at least bearable compared to the cold spell we just suffered.

The crew headed south to Spadina Station, transferred to the Bloor-Danforth Line at everyone's favourite tunnel, before making its way to the Office Pub for a few libations. Along the way they received hundreds of quizzical looks, received a few smiles, and disrupted the mundanity of a boring Sunday on the TTC.

Check out this gallery to see how the 2014 No Pants Subway Ride went down in Toronto.

I'm a little more annoyed at the shoes and boots on seats in a few of the photos... :-(

ewwww! too much skin & i think i saw partial bare butt in 1 of the fotos. that's prob why i avoided the subway that day. I think it's a better idea to have TTC costume day or some other theme instead. this is Canada so we're a bit more conservative here.

Just looking at the photos on CNN from other cities around the world doing this event. Toronto looks by far to be the douchiest and slutiest.

I agree with you. Actually, some people in Toronto don`t have manners at all! I always see this on the subway.

Disappointed that Jose Bautista would participate in this event. (opening picture)

In case anyone who participated visits this article, I'm curious why you participated. Is it anything more profound than "Look at me! Look at me!"?

I think everyone needs to calm down. If people wanna go pants-less in the subway, they should go pants-less. Nothing is all that serious. It's fun to go pants-less in public without being worried about people judging your half-naked state. Maybe that's why they participated. Maybe they like the feeling of red fabric on their hamstrings. Either way, it doesn't need to become the great debate of 2014.

If Stintz was doing her job she would have known about this preplanned peice of shit. She should've been there to shut this down! Instead where was she? Knobody knows....

I think it looks fun. And would make most normal people smile. Why are some of you so grumpy?
