The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) on Wednesday celebrated its 31 billionth ride since the agency was established in 1921.

The TTC estimates the trip took place last month. The agency selected a random rider to represent the 31 billionth trip who received a year's worth of complimentary monthly passes.

"It is an exciting time for transit in Toronto with a new subway extension opening this year and the ongoing modernization of [our] entire network,” said TTC Chair Josh Colle in a press release.

TTC's ridership has increased each year for the past 13 years. In 2015, the agency served an all-time record of 537 million passengers.
