PROGRESS

I was really happy to read that the authorities are planning to increase the number of bus services in the capital area.

Putting on services with a 15 minute frequency (rather than 30 minutes or hourly) makes the bus a viable option for more people. 

I hope that one day more people will start using the bus services in the Westfjords. Many people drive to work from the villages to the Isafjordur and back again, the bus is a cheaper and environmentally favourable option. Getting decent bus services up and running could also  boost tourism – whilst tourism is a relatively small part of the local economy, it would help if people could reliably get to the village without needing to hire a car and navigate the mountain roads.
