Bus traffic restricted in City Center

Transportation Zoning


New arrangement for tourist bus/coach traffic in Reykjavík city center was approved by the environment and planning committee on May 3rd and by the city council on May 11th. The new arrangement, affective July 15th, is shown in the map below and described in text.

From July 15th all tourist bus/coach traffic will be banned on streets within the yellow colored zone, see map above (excluding Lækjargata). The driving routes around the area are also shown on the map. The traffic ban includes tourist busses/coaches of any size, vehicles with group licenses and specialized vehicles, f.ex. mountaineering jeeps.
Pick-up/drop-off areas will be located on 12 spots near the city center as shown on the map.
An interactive map of the pick-up/drop-off spots can be found on the website busstop.is. The site is under construction but the user will be able to zoom into every location and view an image of what the pick-up/drop-off spot looks like etc. This should make these key spots easy to find. Travelers with a smartphone (equipped with GPS) will be able to see where the pick-up/drop-off areas are located and get directions from the current location to the chosen pick-up/drop-off spot. A map of pick-up/drop-off spots in the city center can also be downloaded from the website for viewing offline or printing.
