  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.....
"Express Motors" have ceased to operate any service
The Sherpa network (except the Sunday "S97") is now being operated by "Gwynfor Coaches"


BEWARE - MANY existing connections at Beddgelert have been either SEVERED or considerably extended
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT CAUGHT OUT !!!

BEWARE..........
The level of the connecting service "88" between Caernarfon and Llanberis has been roughly halved and is now operated by Arriva *
The level of the connecting service "X1" between Llandudno and Betws-y-Coed has been reduced and limited services are now operted by Arriva ("X1") and Llew Jones ("X19")
* - an aditional weekday slightly-later "88" connecting journey has subsequently been added
(since the initial timetable was made public)
Please check the revised times very carefully as some previous connections have now been broken !

In many cases it is now quicker to change at Pen-y-Pass and use the direct "S4" Sherpa to/from Caernarfon
REMEMBER - on some local School Day journeys..........
Llandudno passengers MUST change to/from the "S2" Sherpa at Llanrwst
but Betws-y-Coed on all other dates  (see below for details)

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