In the title salt, C15H16N+·C7H7O3S-, the dihedral angle between the pyridine and benzene rings of the cation is 5.98 (18)°. In the crystal, adjacent anions and cations are linked by weak non-classical C-H...O hydrogen bonds and [pi]-[pi] interactions, with a centroid-centroid distance of 3.749 (2) Å.
