  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

  CHANGES FOR WINER 2017-2018..............

There are minor changes to the times of the last
return weekday journeys back from Snowdonia

as well as a reduced level of "S2" onward connections
at Pen-y-Pass to/from both Betws-y-Coed and Llanberis


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

09.00 - Sherpa journey    
% - as there is less than 5 minutes at Beddgelert it is NOT recognised as a connection by the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner,"  -  however in reality these journeys are normally worked by the same bus    
%% - whilst in theory is is possible to catch the earlier "S4" at Beddgelert - as it is less than 5 minutes it is NOT recognised as a connection by the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner,"  but if you do make it you will get to Pen-y-Pass and Betws-y-Coed much earlier
