  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

  LATER WEEKDAY JOURNEYS..............

  NEW
Summer 2017 - there are additional late-afternoon
weekday journeys through the Nant Gwynant pass

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
These will depart from Porthmadog at 1715 calling Beddgelert (1734)
and Nant Gwynant (1739)
(for the Watkin path) and connect
at Penygwryd for Betws-y-Coed
(connection to Llandudno)
also Pen-y-Pass for Llanberis
It will return from Pen-y-Pass at 1800 connecting from Betws-y-Coed at 1640
and Llanberis at 1735
arriving Beddgelert at 1818 and Porthmadog at 1845


This "unofficial" website attempts to show what services are available

It contains composite timetables of connecting services on a cross-Snowdonia route basis
where a change of bus is necessary --- hopefully it will help you plan your days out

It also includes some suggested "trips round Snowdonia - without your car"

09.50 - Sherpa journey     # - arrives three minutes earlier    
S+LSH - Saturdays and local (Llanrwst) School Holidays only    
$$$ - passengers for Llanberis should travel via Bangor (Caernarfon depart 1945(5C), Bangor Hospital arrive 2004, depart 2025(85), Llanberis arrive 2108)    
% - whilst in theory is is possible to catch the 1820 "S4" at Beddgelert - it has been retimed later during the summer for that reason - as it is less than 5 minutes it is NOT recognised as a connection    
by the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner" (if the "S97" is running late or there is no sign of the "S4" - remain on the "S97" Sherpa and return via Porthmadog  (rather than risk being stranded in Beddgelert)    
  latest times should always be confirmed from the individual timetables on the official Gwynedd CC website  and any subsequent amendments thereto
