  B E W A R E ....................... !!!
Car Parking in Snowdonia is very limited and can be VERY expensive even if a space can be found
(Parking your car on one of the many "clearways" is illegal and you will get a hefty fine !)

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

    STOP PRESS..........
    So far no announcement has been made about any possible changes to the "S4" and "S97" services serving the Beddgelert area..........
..........however,  commencing Wednesday 13th January 2021 the level of the "S2" Sherpa connections from/to Betws-y-Ccoed will
be considerably reduced - click here for details of the temporary MUCH REDUCED "S2" journeys still operating

    Arriva have withdraw their weekday "3B" connecting service from Porthmadog to Blaenau Ffestiniog and a revised service is now being operated by Lloyds Coaches

    Gwynfor have confirmed the 1730 "S2" Sherpa from Betws-y-Coed to Llanberis WIlL now be extended to Caernarfon - as it was all summer
    This means there is an 1810 local journey from Llanberis - 'one hour' later than the last "88" at 1710 !!!!!

    The "winter 2020-2021" Shrepa timetables have been advanced to commence on Saturday 24th October
  (co-terminous with the all-Wales 'two week' lock down)

    The daily "S2" reverts to the standard "one bus" two hourly service without the late journeys
    The connecting weekdays only "S4" from Caernarfon to Pen-y-Pass terminates at Beddgelert and to compensate the "S97" from Porthmadog to Beddgelert is extended to Pen-y-Pass --- minor changes to many times and again without the late journeys

    Unfortunately,  many official websites (including the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner") continue to show journeys which have either been "WITHDRAWN" or are currently "SUSPENDED"
    These are also included below as a warning - to help you avoid being caught out !!!
