IMPORTANT
    3rd October 2021
    Llew Jones have SUSPENDED all their evening connections along the Conwy Valley to Llandudno,  Llanrwst and Betws-y-Coed - click here for further details
LATEST
    BEWARE
- DESPITE the Gwynedd CC website erroneously showing ALL Arriva Sunday evening "5" journeys withdrawn after 1825,  the Arriva's own website confirms a revised 'reduced' Sunday evening service as shown below

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the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner") continue to show journeys which have either been "CHANGED" or sometimes even "WITHDRAWN"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
18.25 18.25
    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 VERY important note above
click here for alternative 'Monday to Saturday evening journeys'
Make sure you are down from the mountain in time !!!
  BEWARE..............
The last direct Sunday and Public Holiday connecting Sherpa to Betws-y-Coed-Llanrwst-Conwy-Llandudno
from Pen-y-Pass departs at 1810 in the summer
(starts Llanberis Joe Brown at 1750)
Don't Dispair
    In the unlikely event you are unfortunate enough to miss the 1810 direct "S2" Sherpa from Pen-y-Pass 
- there is a later S2" Sherpa from Pen-y-Pass
1905 to Caernarfon via Llanberis,  with onward connections via Bangor
    "1bws (one bus) day tickets" are valid on these alternative BUS routes back to Llandudno or Llanrwst/Betws-y-Coed or Bethesda
- but NOT the train journeys
