Car Parking in Snowdonia is very limited and can be expensive if a space can be found

The alternative is to leave your car behind and use the
Snowdon Sherpa Bus network

  LATEST NEWS....
There are minor re-timings to the "70" timetable
In future on Saturdays the "70" will only operate between Corwen and Llanrwst

(connections to/from Llandudno by Express Motors "X1" journeys - as on Tuesdays)


This "unofficial" website attempts to show what is still available
and to encourage greater use includes some suggested
"trips round Snowdonia - without your car"

09.10 - Sherpa connection    
$$$ - on local (Llanrwst) School Days only,  this "19" journey terminates at Llanrwst school - passengers requiring onward connections are advised to alight at the Birmingham Garrage stop (immediately after the 'Hump-Back' bridge) and either join the "70" there    
(or walk back round the corner to Watling Street - where there is a shelter)
   
* - arrives Llanberis Interchange bus stop - "S2" connection departs Interchange stop at 0805    
# - there are later Arriva journeys from Bangor, but these involve a walk from the flyover stop to the station stop at Llandudno Junction    
$ - if the "70" does not have to serve all the request locations, you may be lucky enough to catch the earlier "T3" departure at 1730    
% - whilst in theory is is possible to catch the 0958 "55" at Corwen - as it is less than 5 minutes it is NOT recognised as a connection by the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner"    
(however, if you do, it will get you to Llangollen earlier than waiting for the "T3" 1010 departure)    
  LSch - Llanrwst School Days only       LSH - Llanrwst School Holidays only    
+ - unless the "70" is running 'spot on time' - you are advised to alight at Corwen Old Station and catch the "T3" from across the road (dep 1001)    
** - Remember the "70" bus will only operate beyond Betws-y-Coed if there are passengers on the bus at that point     R - on request to the driver    
  latest times should always be confirmed from the individual timetables on the official Gwynedd CC or Conwy CC websites  and any subsequent amendments thereto

$ - if the "70" is running spot on time, you may be lucky enough to catch the earlier "T3" departure at 1730    
# - unless the "70" is running 'spot on time' - you are advised to alight at Corwen Old Station and catch the "T3" from across the road (dep 1001)    
% - whilst in theory is is possible to catch the 0958 "55" at Corwen - as it is less than 5 minutes it is NOT recognised as a connection by the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner"    
(however, if you do, it will get you to Llangollen earlier than waiting for the "T3" 1010 departure)

1110 - Sherpa connection    
% - whilst in theory is is possible to catch the 1823 "X1" at Betws-y-Coed (Waterloo) - as it is less than 5 minutes it is NOT recognised as a connection by the    
TravelineCymru "Journey Planner"  (however, if you do make it,  you will get back to Llandudno half-an-hour earlier)    
(Remember if you do alight from the "70" at Waterloo, the same "70" will pass again in the opposite direction roughly 5 minuites later - so you won't be stuck !!!)    

%% - whilst in theory is is possible to catch the 1922 "88" at Llanberis - it has been retimed later during the summer for that reason    
- as it is less than 5 minutes it is NOT recognised as a connection by the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner"  (however, if you do, it will get you to Caernarfon much earlier)    
  latest times should always be confirmed from the individual timetables on the official Gwynedd CC or Conwy CC websites  and any subsequent amendments thereto
