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

(Sherpa journeys are shown in GREEN and other connecting journeys in black)

   STOP PRESS
    Gwynfor have just confirmed the 1730 "S2" Sherpa from Betws-y-Coed to Llanberis WIlL now be extended to Caernarfon - as it was all summer
    This means there is an 1810 local journey from Llanberis - 'one hour' later than the last "88" at 1710 !!!!!

    IMPORTANT..........
    The "winter 2020-2021" Shrepa timetables have been advanced to commence on Saturday 24th October
  (co-terminous with the all-Wales 'two week' lock down)

    The daily "S2" reverts to the standard "one bus" two hourly service without the late journeys
    The connecting weekdays only "S4" from Caernarfon to Pen-y-Pass terminates at Beddgelert and to compensate the "S97" from Porthmadog to Beddgelert is extended to Pen-y-Pass --- minor changes to many times and again without the late journeys


    REMEMBER..........
    Unfortunately,  many official websites (including the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner") continue to show journeys which have either been "WITHDRAWN" or are currently "SUSPENDED"
    These are also included below as a warning - to help you avoid being caught out !!!


    Please bookmark this page and revisit nearer the time to see if there have been any changes or further SUSPENSIONS from the limited official information when this page was last updated

    Any journey shown on all pages on this website with a "strike through" line is still be operating,  BUT it is NO LONGER possible to get a connection back to the start location of this page - eg
 1234 

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

* - whilst in theory it is just possible to catch the earlier 1050 or 1715 "X19" journeys from Betws-y-Coed - as they are less than 5 minutes,   they are NOT recognised as connection by the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner"..........    
..........but if everything is spot on time and you are quick,  it will get you to Llanrwst or Llandudno much earlier    

- all it needs is for both journeys to be retimed TWO minutes later from Betws-y-Coed (as the first one did until Saturday 29th August)    
..........unfortunately this is yet another example of 'failed' integrated timetable planning in the area    

 - 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 "X19" journeys slightly later to RELIABLY connect
