Yes, people do ride mass transit in Los Angeles. And once a year, they do it without pants.
As part of an international improvisation event called the “No Pants Subway Ride,” scores of Angelenos — fully dressed, but only from the waist up — will swarm the Red Line’s Hollywood/Highland station at 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
Captains with nicknames like Agent Meow Meow and Agent Silky will gather groups together along the Red, Gold and Expo lines earlier on Sunday afternoon and help new riders pay fares, find their way through Union Station, and change trains.
