Strætó, the public transport company that operates in Reykjavík, has announced it will no longer sell paper tickets on city and provincial buses.

We have been having some awful weather here as of late, so we’re specially grateful for our comfy traditional lopapeysa sweaters, the beautiful woolen garments which have been keeping Icelanders warm for generations. They’re available in our shop, and ours are hand-knitted right here in Iceland.

Customers who have purchased paper tickets in bulk can exchange them for credit in the Klapp bus app by March 16.

To exchange the paper tickets, one should either visit the Strætó office at Hestháls 14 (open on weekdays from 9:00 to 14:00) or send the tickets by mail. Users who haven’t registered in the Klapp app before will have to do so.

Customers who have a valid bus card can continue to use it until the expiry date. Afterwards, they will also have to switch to the new Klapp ticketing system.

You can buy Klapp cards at several locations, or download it to your phone. More information on that is available here.
