VERY IMPORTANT
    Early September 2021
    There are further changes to the weekday connecting "88" service between Caernarfon and Llanberis commencing Monday 6th September

    MAKE SURE YOU ARE AWARE OF THE CHANGES IF YOU INTEND TO CONNECT WITH A SHREPA JOURNEY AT LLANBERIS

    Any "88" connection shown on this website on a page dated before 3rd September has not yet been updated to reflect these FURTHER VERY SHORT NOTICE CHANGES --- IF IN ANY DOUBT,  check the latest position direct with the operator before you set out

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the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner") continue to show journeys which have either been "CHANGED" or sometimes even "WITHDRAWN"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

Mondays to Saturdays - 6th September  until further notice
