Saskatoon Public Transit
Saskatoon Transit is run by the City of Saskatoon.
Fares to ride the transit must be paid with exact change since the drivers do not carry change. For convenience, you may wish to get a "sheet" of 10 tickets. Fares are reduced for students, who must produce their school transit card when asked for proof of age. These transit cards are not bus passes, and still require the fare to be paid.
|High School Student*||$2.10||$15.00|
