Saskatoon Transit provides public transportation to the city of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Almost all buses have bike racks, except for #0603. Saskatoon Transit uses BEA fareboxes on all vehicles. Annual ridership is about 12 Million people. In April 2014, Transit started to install ITS (Intelligent Transit System) signs on buses with the year 1990 and up. Buses 405(1984) and 417, 419-420(1989) are not expected to receive these signs due to issues with the wiring.
