Hlemmur (Icelandic pronunciation: ​[ˈl̥ɛmːʏr̥]) was one of the two main bus stations/terminals for Strætó bs in Reykjavík, Iceland. As of January 2016, the only main station/terminal is Lækjartorg. All the red 'trunk' routes operated from Hlemmur, while the green general routes all stoped there.

The 2002 documentary Hlemmur tells about homeless people who spend most of their time in and around the bus station.

In 2015 it was announced that Hlemmur Station would close and be replaced by a food court as part of the gentrification of the neighborhood[1]
