There will be major changes to the Strætó’s route system due to Reykjavík city´s construction at Hlemmur.

The changes will affect the routes of the buses and all bus routes in the area will be temporarily diverted and new end stops will be put into use.

A new square of Hlemmur will be created and traffic will move away from the square area. The infrastructure of Borgarlína will be built through the area to the north.

Construction on the square itself is to begin in the spring of 2024, and then Strætó will have to completely stop driving through the area.

All routes will stop going through Hlemmur and will instead take different routes. New stops will be at Snorrabraut and Borgartún and the bus stop at the Þjóðskalasafnið will be moved.

New temporary end stops

Route 3 will have Grandi as an end stop, that already exists, route 14 already has end stop there.

Routes 1, 4, 16, 17 and 18 will have Skúlagata as a temporary end stop, which is new.

Routes 2 and 6 will have (University of Iceland) as a temporary end stop, which is new.

How will Hlemmur be after construction?

  • First, public bus routes will use the infrastructure of Borgarlína through the square.
  • Bus routes will also run north/south via Snorrabraut.
  • When the construction of the first round of Borgarlína is finished, four routes will run through the square, including Borgarlína B.
  • No routes will have Hlemmur as an end stop.
  • There will be no central end stop in the future.
