  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..........
Although there are no further alterations to the "S6" or "S2" Sherpa service.......
there is a faster alternative late return journey via Llanberis and Bethesda

If you are planning on returning that route...........
make sure you ask the driver of your first bus for a "Gwynedd Red Rover" day ticket

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 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)    
and 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 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 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
