VERY IMPORTANT
NOTE --- MOST NON-SHERPA CONNECTING JOURNEYS WHICH WERE SUSPENDED DURING THE SEVERE CORONAVIRUS RESTRICTIONS PERIOD HAVE RE-COMMENCED
(the majority from Monday 12th April 2021)

The extra summer "S2" journeys which were withdrawn for winter 2020-2021 are re-instated in virtually the same times..........
..........the two former "School Days Only" extensions to/from Llanrwst
will in future apply DAILY to improve connections from/to Llandudno
but the 1730 journey from Betws-y-Coed is cut short at Llanberis

(instead of continuing to Caernarfon)

The section of route between Pen-y-Pass and Beddgelert is re-instated
BUT REVERTS TO THE OLD ROUTE NUMBER "S4"

(rather than "S97" as immediately prior to the Coronavirus restrictions)
The former extra early and late summer afternoon journeys through
the Nant Gwynant Pass are to again operate
BUT NOTE SPECIALLY the last weekday journey from Pen-y-Pass
(at 1810) continues to Caernarfon rather than Porthmadog

Extra Summer Only "S1" 'Park and Ride' journeys between
Llanberis and Pen-y-Pass are re-instated for the summer to
augment the basic "S2" journeys

(service level varies to meet traffic demand)

The Weekend only "S6" Sherpa between Bangor and Pen-y-Pass
via Llyn Ogwen (for Tryfan)
re-commenced with extra journeys
operating " during School Holiday weekends "

    REMEMBER..........
    Unfortunately,  many official websites (including the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner") continue to show journeys which have either been "WITHDRAWN" or are currently "SUSPENDED"
    These are also included below as a warning - to help you avoid being caught out !!!


    Please bookmark this page and revisit nearer the time to see if there have been any changes or further SUSPENSIONS from the limited official information when this page was last updated

    Any journey shown on all pages on this website with a "strike through" line is still be operating,  BUT it is NO LONGER possible to get a connection back to the start location of this page - eg
 1234 



This "unofficial" website attempts to show what is available
and to encourage greater also use includes some suggested
"trips round Snowdonia - without your car"



Sundays - 18th April 2021  until further notice
also Public Holidays Early Spring Weekend Monday 3rd May  Late Spring Weekend Monday 31st May and Late Summer Weekend Monday 29th August

see 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
    "Red Rover day tickets" are valid on these alternative BUS routes back to Llandudno or Llanrwst/Betws-y-Coed

16.50 - Sherpa journey    
 
* - normally worked by the same "through" bus    
# - as this is less than five minutes,  it is NOT recognised as a connection by the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner" but if everything is spot on time and you are quick,    
it is sometimes just possible to catch the previous "5C-5" journey - getting you back to Llandudno much earlier    
M - departs from stop "M" outside Conwy railway station (also one minute later from Mount Pleasant stop) - alight off the "5" at "Town Ditch" stop    
and walk under the arch across the road to the railway station
   
R - extends to Betws-y-Coed on request to the driver at or before Llanrwst    
  latest times should always be confirmed from the individual timetables on the official Gwynedd CC website or official Conwy CC website and any subsequent amendments thereto
