      The mass transit system in the city of Saskatoon, in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan, is probably the most primitive. For one, it does not have a rapid rail system. In fact, the entire system is composed of a network of buses serving 16 different routes.

      A bus ticket costs Canadian $2.50. Many of the buses are old, although they are quite sturdy and relatively well maintained.
