    Llew Jones has SUSPENDED all their evening connections along the Conwy Valley to Llandudno,  Llanrwst and Betws-y-Coed - click here and here for further details

Snowdon Sherpa Bus Timetables
    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the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner") continue to show journeys which have either been "CHANGED" or sometimes even "WITHDRAWN"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
    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
see important note above

BEWARE - the last Sunday "S97" Sherpa journey from Porthmadog now departs at 1355

Don't Dispair
    In the unlikely event you are unfortunate enough to miss the 13.55 "S97-S4" Sherpa to Beddgelert and Pen-y-Pass or you decide you wish to spend longer in Porthmadog
    there is a later connection via Caernarfon (Lloyds "T2") at 1605
 with onward (Arriva "5-5C") connections via Bangor..........
    or a bus connections via Blaenau Ffestiniog (Llew Jones "1S") at 1540  with an onward (Llew Junes "T19") connection via the Conwy Valley..........
    also later bus/TRAIN connections via Blaenau Ffestiniog (Llew Jones "1S") at 1640 and 1840
