  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..........
    So far,  no official announcement has been made regarding Sherpa services for Summer 2020
    However,  based on the fact Gwynfor has a five-year contract with both Conwy CC and Gwynedd CC,  it s reasonable to assume the number of "S2" journeys will again be "doubled" from winter 2019-2020


    The timings for the extra "S2" summer journeys below ASSUME there are no changes from 2019 and the times for connecting "S4" journeys to and from Beddgelert reflect the current revised timetable which was amended in November 2019 to take into account diversions due to work in connection with the 'new' Caernarfon by-pass

    It also assumes at this stage the summer weekend only "S6" Sherpa through the Ogwen Pass will operate again - in the same times as 2019

    At this stage,  the information below should be treated as "the likely level of service to expect" - but it should be sufficiently accurate to help you make PROVISIONAL plans for your visit - pending "official" information which is often only available a couple of weeks before !

    You are strongly advised to re-visit this page nearer the time to see if there have been any further changes for Summer 2020,  both to the Sherpa timetables and also any connecting journeys

ADVANCE INFORMATION
    According to the Llew Jones Facebook page.........
    ..........as a result of Council cuts,  the "19" service from and back to Llandudno will be cut-back to only operate north of Llanrwst from "April 2020" - this could reduce the number of connections into and out of the Sherpa network at Betws-y-Coed
    It is interesting to note that in one of the TravelineCymru versions of the latest changes they show the timetable to run until (Friday) "19th June 2020" - watch this space for further information nearer the time  !!!
    AT THIS STAGE,   this website ASSUMES no further alterations will take place to any connecting Conwy Valley bus journeys before the start of the summer Sherpa "registered" changes ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    TforW's own website now states
"(rail) disruption is expected until 23:59 18/04/20"

MOST IMPORTANT (westbound journeys)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Instead of serving the station car park stop like
Llew Jones --- Arriva "13" and "27" journeys now
ONLY call at the stop on the main road  just BEFORE
the main car entrance to the car park/station)
There is a short direct footpath from the bus stop
up to the entrance into the station building


Make sure you are not "over-carried"
to the far side of the Roundabout !!!!

It is a long walk back,   especially if you
have a fairly tight connection to make


   
click on picture to enlarge  

Please bookmark and re-visit this page nearer your visit for confirmation
and to check if there have been any further changes


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