Pick Up Locations & The Reykjavik City Bus Stops

With a Hotel Connection we pick you up from your hotel, guesthouse, or designated bus stop if you are staying in the restricted area in downtown Reykjavik.

When booking your transfer online you will be able to select from a list of available pick-up locations. SmartBus offer pick up and drop-off service for all hotels and guesthouses in the central Reykjavik area. If you are staying in the restricted downtown area, then SmartBus will pick you up from your designated bus stop provided by the city. If you are staying in a private residence downtown then you can select a hotel or a bus stop that is nearby to your location. For help to see which pick-up location is suitable for you, please contact us at

The reason behind the restricted area is that Reykjavik City aims to keep the small scaled city centre a pleasant and safe place for everyone with less bus traffic. Hence, the city of Reykjavik offers special pick-up and drop-off places. The bus stops are located in and around the city centre and are easily accessible. Most hotels in the restricted area are within a 5-10 minute walking distance from bus stops.

These are the bus stops provided by the city of Reykjavik:
