IMPORTANT
    mid-November 2021
    Arriva have announced that due to a dispute with their drivers ALL ARRIVA connecting BUSES IN NORTH WALES ARE SUSPENDED FROM 0600 SUNDAY 14th NOVEMBER FOR FIVE WEEKS
    It is understood that all other BUS services (including all Winter Sherpa journeys) are expected to run to their normal winter times - confirm direct with the operator/s concerned for their latest information
    Passengers from Chester and the North Wales Coast Resorts are advised to travel to Llandudno Junction or Betws-y-Coed by train to join and return from the Sherpa Bus Network
    1st November 2021
    With just three days to go,  Gwynfor announced changes to the Sherpa timetables for Winter 2021-2022
    Basically the "S2" reverted to a 'one bus' operation similar to last winter,  BUT some journeys run slightly EARLIER than during the summer.  However the "S4" and "S97" services have been re-cast (still making limited connections at Pen-y-Pass),  whilst the "S1" and "S6" services have again been "suspended" for the winter..........
.........see below for the latest known information also updated other pages on this website

    In view of the late official information - at one time Operators were legally required to give at least 56 days notice of any change - ANY PAGE ON THIS WEBSITE DATED BEFORE 29th OCTOBER SHOUD BE REGARDED AS "STILL TO BE FULLY UPDATED"


    Please bookmark this page NOW to see if any further information has been made public - using the date below as a quick guide to check if this page has been amended since your last visit

  B E W A R E ....................... !!!
Car Parking in Snowdonia is very limited and can be VERY expensive even if a space can be found
(Parking your car on one of the many "clearways" is illegal and you will get a hefty fine !)

The alternative is to leave your car behind and use the
Snowdon Sherpa Bus network

    STOP PRESS
    The 1730 weekday Sherpa from Betws-y-Coed terminates at Llanberis in 2021 and there is no official onward connection

   Passengers for Caernarfon are advised to catch the earlier "S2" journey from Betws-y-Coed (depart 1548) or Pen-y-Pass (depart 1610) rather than "risk" a 'zero minute "theoretical" connection at 1810 - which is NOT recognised by the TeavelineCymru "Journey Planner"

    REMEMBER..........
    Due to so many last-minute changes to the various services in the area,  unfortunately many official websites (including the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner") continue to show journeys which have either been "CHANGED" or sometimes even "WITHDRAWN"
    Where known,  these are also included below as a warning - to help avoid you being caught out !!!


    Please bookmark and revisit nearer the time to check if there have been any further known changes since your last visit to this page

    Journeys shown on this website with a "strike through" line are still operating,  BUT it is NO LONGER possible to get a (bus) connection back to the start location of the page - eg
 1234 

    Thrughout Snowdonia there are unfortunately numerous cases of "sub-standard" connections which are NOT recognised by the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner"
(as they are less than 5 minutes) - eg
17.15 17.12
or
18.10 18.10
    Although this website strongly advises you NOT to 'chance' them..........
..........they are included to draw your attention to the fact that if everything is 'spot on time' and you are "very quick" - it can sometimes get you to your destination considerably earlier



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

09.05 - Sherpa journey     + - on non-School Days departs five minutes later     b - "S4" Sherpa to Beddgelert - change to "S4" (which departs from outside the Tourist Office across the road)    
# - this Sherpa works through from Porthmadog to Pen-y-Pass via Beddgelert and the route number "S4" or "S97" (sometimes changing en-route)    
## - this Sherpa works through from Caernarfon to Pen-y-Pass via Beddgelert - the indicator on the front of the bus may show "Beddgelert" or "Pen-y-Pass" (sometimes changing en-route)    

- in all cases there is always only ONE bus so make sure you are not left behind !!!    
      R -  continues to 
    Betws-y-Coed on request 
    to the driver 
 















  %% - operates direct to Llandrillo College on Mondays to Thursdays during College Term, returning via Llandudno arrive 1715 --- on other dates operates direct to Llandudno arrive 1640    
$ - whilst in theory it is just about possible to catch the earlier "S4" at Beddgelert if the "S97 is running 'spot on time' - as it is less than five 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 over two hours earlier
   
All it needs is the 1345 ex-Porthmadog and the inward working at 1230 from Caernarfon to run five minutes EARLIER throughout and the problem is solved !!!    
..........unfortunately this is yet further example of 'failed' integrated timetable planning for the Sherpa network    

 - if this causes you inconvenience or additional costs,  write/phone (01248 722 694)/email both the operator (Gwynfor)    
and Gwynedd CC and ask them to retime their 1345 "S97" Sherpa to start at 1340 to make a RELIABLE connection    

* - whilst in theory it is just possible to catch the earlier 1715 "T19" journey from Betws-y-Coed    
- as it is less than 5 minutes,   it is NOT recognised as a 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 VERY much earlier    
All it needs is the 1650 ex-Blaenau Ffestiniog to depart Betws-y-Coed slightly later (as it did until Saturday 29th August 2020)    
..........unfortunately as this IS NOW THE LAST JOURNEY OF THE DAY - it is PROBABLY THE WORST EXAMPLE    
of 'FAILED' INTEGRATED TIMETABLE PLANNING IN SNOWDONIA    

(if you miss it, your ONLY OPTION NOW IS TO CATCH THE 1802 TRAIN at Betws-y-Coed  (SOME TICKETS MAY NOT BE VALID) AS THE ARE NO LONGER ANY LATER CONWY VALLEY BUSES !!!!!    
 - if this causes you inconvenience or additional costs,  write/phone/email the operator (Llew Jones - 01492 640 320), 
Conwy CC and/or TrawsCymru
and ask them to retime the 1715 "T19" journey slightly later to RELIABLY connect 

  latest times should always be confirmed from the individual timetables on the official Gwynedd CC or Conwy CC websites  and any subsequent amendments thereto
