In the title compound, C14H9O2S, the benzothia­zole unit is oriented at a dihedral angle of 7.1 (1)° with respect to the benzodioxole unit. The dioxole ring adopts flattened envelope conformation with the methyl­ene C atom at the flap. The crystal packing is stabilized by π–π inter­actions [centroid–centroid distances = 3.705 (1) and 3.752 (1) Å], C—H⋯π inter­actions and a short S⋯S contact of 3.485 (1) Å.
