Nuup Bussii A/S is a bus company in Nuuk, the capital of Greenland, providing public transport services for the city. As of 2006 Nuup Bussii had 24 employees,[1] operating 12 Leyland DAB and Volvo B12M buses with a distinct yellow color,[2] as well as five other small vehicles.[1]


The characteristic yellow bus of Nuup Bussii, on the way from the town centrum to the Nuussuaq diistrict of Nuuk.

Prior to the establishment of public services, the ground transport in the city was operated by private entrepreneurs.[2] The volatility and alleged unreliability of the services prompted the former Nuuk Municipality to regulate the traffic, and establish a public transportation company, overseen by the municipal authorities.[2] Nuup Bussii was then founded on 26 September 1980.[1][2]

In 2006 the buses covered 730,000 kilometres (450,000 mi) around the city of Nuuk.[1] Since 2009 Nuup Bussii provides city transport services in Nuuk for the new Sermersooq municipality,[3] linking the town centre with the outlying districts and neighborhoods[4] of Nuussuaq, Qinngorput, as well as Qernertunnguit in Quassussuup Tungaa.[5]
