Strætó Introducing Electric Buses
“We expect to put the first four electric buses into service at the end of August or in early September,” stated Strætó CEO Jóhannes Rúnarsson. The electric buses will most likely be used on Route 4, which runs between the main Reykjavík bus termini of Hlemmur downtown and Mjódd in the Breiðholt neighborhood. The buses will be the first of their kind in Iceland, although earlier this summer private bus company Guðmundur Tyrfingsson ehf. started operating a coach that also runs exclusively on electricity that it bought from the same manufacturer.
