LATEST
    Late June 2021
    Following weeks of traffic chaos in the Caernarfon area,  a TEMPORARY revised,  reduced level "88" weekday timetable is operating to try and improve timekeeping
    Passenegrs intending to connect with the Sherpa at Llanberis should familiarise themselves with the changes.....
.....Eastbound click here or here
.....Westbound click here or here

BEWARE
    There are some NEW "silly" zero minute connections at Llanberis which are NOT recognised as such by the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner"
    You are STRONGLY advised NOT TO RISK them,  but if you are lucky and manage to make one,  it will get you there much quicker - yet another example of "failed" Integrated Timetable Planning in Snowdonia !!!

VERY IMPORTANT
NOTE --- MOST NON-SHERPA CONNECTING JOURNEYS WHICH WERE SUSPENDED DURING THE SEVERE CORONAVIRUS RESTRICTIONS PERIOD HAVE RE-COMMENCED
(the majority from Monday 12th April 2021)

The extra summer "S2" journeys which were withdrawn for winter 2020-2021 are re-instated in virtually the same times..........
..........the two former "School Days Only" extensions to/from Llanrwst
will in future apply DAILY to improve connections from/to Llandudno
but the 1730 journey from Betws-y-Coed is cut short at Llanberis

(instead of continuing to Caernarfon)

The section of route between Pen-y-Pass and Beddgelert is re-instated
BUT REVERTS TO THE OLD ROUTE NUMBER "S4"

(rather than "S97" as immediately prior to the Coronavirus restrictions)
The former extra early and late summer afternoon journeys through
the Nant Gwynant Pass are to again operate
BUT NOTE SPECIALLY the last weekday journey from Pen-y-Pass
(at 1810) continues to Caernarfon rather than Porthmadog

Extra Summer Only "S1" 'Park and Ride' journeys between
Llanberis and Pen-y-Pass are re-instated for the summer to
augment the basic "S2" journeys

(service level varies to meet traffic demand)

The Weekend only "S6" Sherpa between Bangor and Pen-y-Pass
via Llyn Ogwen (for Tryfan)
re-commenced with extra journeys
operating " during School Holiday weekends "


from the Cambrian coast to the mountains of Snowdonia

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

Suggested timings are shown below and all the trips featured can all be done for just £6.80 using a "Red Rover"
which is valid all day on any bus in Gwynedd - this gives you the flexibility to change your mind
if you suddenly decide to go elsewhere or stop off en-route !
(Purchase from the driver of your first bus)


    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"



Snowdon Sherpa
Mondays to Saturdays - 12th April 2021  until further notice
except Public Holidays Early Spring Weekend Monday 3rd May  Late Spring Weekend Monday 31st May and Late Summer Weekend Monday 29th August

see important note above
  Click here for suggested Sunday and Public Holiday itineraries from Barmouth
"Trips around Snowdonia - without your car"
from Barmouth

Summer is an ideal time for a longer day out to visit Snowdonia
