  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..........
Several Sherpa times have been changed from Porthmadog to eliminate the longer
gaps between journeys and running times are eased to improve performance
Some connections at Beddgelert which were severed in January and April have now
been re-instated - but unfortunately there are still some "near-misses"
also some "zero" minute connections which as usual will NOT be recognised
by the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner" !!!
 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
On Sundays the 1110 "S97" will in future connect off Lloyds morning northbound
"T2" which in turn has a feeder from Barmouth (depart 0940) via Harlech
On return, the last Sherpa from Pen-y-Pass will arrive Porthmadog in time to again connect with the Gwynfor 1735 "2-2G" back to Barmouth
- thus reinstating the option of a Sunday visit to Beddgelert/Snowdonia
Two former Sunday "S4" Rhyd Ddu journeys each way are extended from/to
Caernarfon via Waunfawr for the first time in many years

something Gwynfor deserve considerable credit for !!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
All connecting journeys from and back to Barmouth,   Harlech and Dolgellau
remain unaltered

Please bookmark and re-visit this page nearer the time in case there have been
any further last minute 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"
