Nearly 18% of people living in Iceland regularly used public transport in 2014 according to Statistics Iceland, the official data collection office.

Those earning in the bottom tenth percentile bracket have the highest rate of regular public transport use, at 30.5%. The data does not show a direct correlation between income and use of public transport. 12-20% of all other income brackets are regular travellers, and second highest group after the lowest income bracket are those in the eightieth percentile.
