IMPORTANT
    Start October 2021
    Gwynfor has SUSPENDED all their "2S" Sunday connections along the Cambrian Coast between Barmouth and Porthmadog via Harlech - click here for further details
AS THIS PAGE IS NOT YET FULLY UPDATED

      Limited alternative BUS journeys are available via Dolgellau and there is a
"Rail Replacement Bus Service" via Harlech vice the Cambrian Coast railway train service

Snowdon Sherpa Bus Timetables
unofficial website


    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the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner") continue to show journeys which have either been "CHANGED" or sometimes even "WITHDRAWN"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 

    Throughout 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
17.40 17.39
    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"

Sundays - 3rd October 2021  until further notice
