Forum: High quality green transport to KEF

Good and environmentally friendly transport between the international airport in Keflavík and the capital region is an extremely important project for the future. At an open meeting of key stakeholders, we discuss the joint vision, feasibility and possible solutions to the challenges we face. We get inspiration from other cities in Europe that have undertaken similar projects that can be learned from and take the pulse of the possibilities offered by people working around the world on large infrastructure projects with a focus on greener transport.

The meeting is supported by the City of Reykjavík, the Ministry of Infrastructure, Kadeco, the Regional Planning Committee of the capital region and the Union of Local Authorities in Suðurnes.
