  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..........
There is an increased level of "S2" Sherpa service for the summer
The last Sherpa from Betws-y-Coed is extended to Caernarfon


Most connecting services remain unaltered at this stage,  although
several changes to service "88" between Llanberis and Caernarfon
and vv are planned from the second weekend of April


Note specially there is no longer a fast "X1" connection from Llandudno along the east side of the Conwy Valley to connect into the first Sherpa at 0910
ADVANCE INFORMATION.........
Arriva is to make changes to their "88" connecting service from and back to Caernarfon from 9th April 2018

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     $ - these "S2" Sherpas continue to Llanrwst arrive 0838 and 1538 (via Llanrwst School) on local School Days only     * - BEWARE on fine days (particularly Summer Saturdays) this "S2" Sherpa journey can be very busy and sometimes runs quite late from Pen-y-Pass onwards due to the loading and unloading of large numbers of passengers for Snowdon    
LSch - local (Llanrwst) School Days only     S+LSH - Saturdays also during local (Llanrwst) School Holidays       S+LSH - Saturdays also local (Llanrwst) School Holidays    
c - change buses in Llanrwst    
1450 # - according to the revised table "88" on the Gwynedd CC website,  Arriva will operate additional "88" connecting journeys from Caernarfon to Llanberis at 1530 and 1644 commencing Monday 9th April    
% - if the "S2" arrives Betws-y-Coed slightly early,  it is sometimes just possible to catch the earlier 1510 "X19" journey to Llandudno at Betws-y-Coed - unfortunately this is yet another case of 'failed' integrated timetable planning    
- if this also causes you inconvenience,  write/phone(01492 640 320)/email both the operator (Llew Jones) and Conwy CC and ask them to retime this journy later to connect    
  latest times should always be confirmed from the individual timetables on the official Gwynedd CC or Conwy CC websites  and any subsequent amendments thereto

% - BEWARE whilst in theory is is possible to catch the earlier 1835 "19" at Betws-y-Coed - as it is less than 5 minutes it is NOT recognised as a connection by the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner,"    
but if you are QUICK and do make it,  you will get to Llandudno much earlier   - unfortunately this is yet another case of 'failed' integrated timetable planning    
 - if this causes you inconvenience or additional costs,  write/phone/email both the operator (Llew Jones - 01492 640 320) and Conwy CC and ask them to retime the earlier "19" journey slightly later to RELIABLY connect
