The night bus has stopped operating

Strætó has decided to stop operating night buses at weekends as of October 16, 2022. These are routes 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106 and 107.

The Strætó board approved on July 4 to start driving the night bus on weekends for a trial period until the end of September. Now that the trial period has ended, the expectations regarding the number of passengers on the night bus have not been met, even though an increased number was expected this autumn when employees returned from summer vacations and schools started again. Passenger numbers each weekend were around 300 to 340 passengers, an average of 14 to 16 per trip, which is well below acceptable standards.

In view of this and the financial situation of Strætó, the board of Strætó agreed that it is not justified to continue operating the night bus on weekends now that the trial period has ended, and that this service will therefore not be continued.
