IMPORTANT
    4th October 2021
    Llew Jones has SUSPENDED all their evening connections along the Conwy Valley to Llandudno,  Llanrwst and Betws-y-Coed - click here for further details
AS THIS PAGE IS NOT YET FULLY UPDATED

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the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner") continue to show journeys which have either been "CHANGED" or sometimes even "WITHDRAWN"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

    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
17.15 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"


Mondays to Saturdays - 4th October until further notice
see important note above
click here for alternative 'Sunday evening journeys'
  PLEASE NOTE..............
The last Monday to Saturday connecting Sherpa service back to Betws-y-Coed (for Llanrwst-Conwy-Llandudno) from Porthmadog departs at 1720 in the summer  
BUT thanks to Llew Jones recasting their Conwy Valley services..........
..........there is NO LONGER any connection back along the Conwy Valley
    Don't Dispair
    In the unlikely event you are unfortunate enough to miss the 1520 or 1720 "S97" Sherpas to Pen-y-Pass or you decide you wish to spend longer at Porthmadog..........
..........there are alternative journeys via Caernarfon (continuing via Bangor) at 1825,  1940 or 2025
    "1 bws" (one bus) day tickets" are valid on all the alternative BUS routes back to Llandudno or Llanrwst/Betws-y-Coed
