Strætó, the Reykjavík bus company, will expand its route extensively when the first ever city bus will drive all the way to Akureyri, North Iceland, (388 kilometers) on September 2. There will be two scheduled trips a day between the capital and Akureyri, as announced this week.

Managing director of Strætó Reynir Jónsson told visir.is that municipalities in West, Northwest and Northeast Iceland pay for the service.
Route 57 will drive to Akureyri from the Mjódd bus terminal in Reykjavík. The price for a one-way ticket to Akureyri is ISK 7,700 (USD 64, EUR 52) but passengers can also disembark at stops along the way and pay proportionally less.
