The Icelandic Road and Coastal Administration (Vegagerðin) has decided to support the people of Grindvík in these unprecedented times, and offer young people aged 12-17 from Grindavík a free bus card that is valid for buses in the countryside. The cards are intended for young people who need to access services or recreation in the capital area or in Southern peninsula and will be valid for Southern peninsula, South Iceland or West Iceland.
It is possible to apply for the bus card as of today at straeto.is under the store for the countryside The rural cards are not part of Klappið and are physical cards. It is therefore necessary to include a photograph of the person when applying for a card.
The cards can be sent by post or picked up at the office of Strætó bs. at Hestháls 14 or at the service center for people of Grindavík in Tollhúsið, Tryggvagata 19.
