  "S2" Llanberis to Capel Curig*
          (* - for footpath to Llyn Ogwen)
      all year round

sherpanetwork
note specially - currently the "6B" service only operates northbound between Betws-y-Coed/Capel Curig and Llyn Ogwen
  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
and its "by request" extension to Capel Curig to connect into
the last "S2" back to Llanberis

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


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

10.00 - Sherpa journey     b - "S97" Sherpa - change to "S4" Sherpa ar Beddgelert    
***  - BEWARE the weekday morning outward "6B" journey along the Ogwen Valley (for Tryfan) 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)    
In consequence,  the coach times are liable to be changed at short notice    
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 - they were advertising 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 incorect !!!    
Fri - Fridays only     M-Th+S - Mondays to Thursdays and Saturdays only     Sats - operates Saturdays only     S+LSH - operates all Saturdays also local (Llanrwst) School Holidays 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
