The characteristic yellow bus of Nuup Bussii, on the way from the town centrum to the Nuussuaq district 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 2012 the buses transported more than 2 million passengers 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]
