If you were hoping to travel somewhere by bus over the Easter holidays, you can now breathe a little easier.

Icelanders take the Easter holidays very seriously. Many institutions are closed over the five-day holiday, and those who work are paid considerable overtime. Despite this, Vísir reports that capital area bus service will still run over Easter.

In Iceland, the Easter holidays begin on the Thursday before Good Friday, also known as Maundy Thursday. This year, it falls on March 24, and on that day the buses will run according to the traditional Sunday schedule, i.e., every half hour or hour.

Bus service will also follow the Sunday schedule on Good Friday, Easter Sunday, and Easter Monday. On the Saturday within the Easter holiday, buses will run according to the usual Saturday time table.

As the start and end of bus service times vary from route to route, check the bus schedule for your route during Easter for more exact time tables.
