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The extra summer "S2" journeys which were withdrawn for winter 2020-2021 are re-instated in virtually the same times..........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 "

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official websites (including the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner") continue to show journeys which have either been "WITHDRAWN" or are currently "SUSPENDED"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

and to encourage greater also use includes some suggested
"trips round Snowdonia - without your car"
