How to use buses in Iceland

Icelandic bus

Either buy a bunch of tickets at retail vendors or, for a one-off journey, pay in cash as you enter the bus. You need the correct money for this in the capital area as debit/credit cards aren’t accepted on city buses. Enter at the front of the bus and leave at the back. The middle section has space for a few bicycles.
