Tomorrow European mobility week begins which is from 16 – 22 September. Mobility week is a European awareness-raising campaign to improve transports in cities and towns. Since, 2002 cities and towns in Iceland have participated in this concerted effort with municipalities in Europe and Strætó has been involved since beginning.
The aim of the week is to encourage people to think about their own travel habits and encourage more people to use diverse, sustainable means of travel.
