  former Express Motors "S2" Sherpa    
              summer only

sherpanetwork
Please note - the weekday "6B" service is only operating in the northbound direction at the moment
  B E W A R E ....................... !!!
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..........
Llew Jones has made changes to their services in the Bethesda area

Unfortunately this includes the WITHDRAWAL of the former
very useful 1811 "6B" journey from Bethesda via Llyn Ogwen/Tryfan

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This means in future there will be no southbound journeys at all
except for the very limited "S6" Sherpa runs on summer weekends only

LATEST..........
    Llew Jones have made changes to both their "19" and "X19" connections to and from the Sherpa network
    There is now a very useful 'new' early "X19" journey from Llandudno on Saturdays which connects with the first westbound Sherpa at 0910 from Betws-y-Coed
    Unfortunately there is NO LONGER an advertised connection off the 0745 "19" journey from Llandudno on Mondays to Fridays during local (Llanrwst) School Holidays unless you want to "risk" a "Zero" minute bus change at 0835 in Llanrwst which will ONLY take you as far as the Betws-y-Coed "Waterloo Bridge" bus stop..........then it is a short walk into the village to join the 0910 "S2" Sherpa at the "Church" bus stop on the main road

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

***  - BEWARE the weekday morning outward "6B" journey along the Ogwen Valley (for Tyfan) is erroneously shown on the Llew Jones website to start from Llanrwst at 06.32    
and only to operate on weekdays
--- as it is basically a 'postioning' run (operated by a large "National Express" coach) for a journey from Bangor    
it will only pick up at the stop outside the Church on the main road in Betws-y-Coed)    
Unfortunately it is the ONLY northbound Ogwen Valley journey of the day during the winter or mid-week in the summer - but although early, it does offer an opportunity to climb Tryfan for a flat single fare of just 1 !!!    
Ring them on 01492 640 320 for confirmation of the latest position if you intend to travel then remind them their website is incorrect !!!    
# - arrives 1545 on schooldays    
 
Fri - Fridays only     M-Th+S - Mondays to Thursdays and Saturdays only     LSH - Llanrwst School Holidays only     LSch - Llanrwst School Days only     Mon-Fri - Mondays to Fridays only     S+LSH - Saturdays also Llanrwst School Holidays only     Sat - Saturdays only    
$$$ - on local (Llanrwst) School Days only,  this "19" journey terminates at Llanrwst school - passengers requiring onward connections are advised to alight at the 'Birmingham Garage stop' - the official name of the stop,    
even though the garage sign now actually says "Gwydyr Garage"
  (immediately after the 'Hump-Back' river bridge at approximately 0838    
and either join the connecting "S2" Sherpa there  (or walk back round the corner to Watling Street,  where there is a shelter
)    
  
W - this journey calls at the Betws-y-Coed "Waterloo Bridge" bus stop - then a short walk into the village to join the 0910 "S2" Sherpa at the "Church" stop on the main road    
tue - on Tuesdays only there is an extra "70" journey from Llanrwst Watling Street at 0850 to the Betws-y-Coed "Railway Station" stop (destination Corwen)    
$ - these "S2" Sherpa journeys start from Llanrwst at 0855 and 1538 on Llanrwst School Days only    
  latest times should always be confirmed from the individual timetables on the official Gwynedd CC or Conwy CC websites  and any subsequent amendments thereto
