  B E W A R E ....................... !!!
Car Parking in Snowdonia is very limited and can be expensive if a space can be found

The alternative is to leave your car behind and use the
Snowdon Sherpa Bus network

   STOP PRESS
    Gwynfor have made minor changed to their additional "S1" 'Park-and-Ride' Sherpa journeys commencing Monday 17th May

    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official websites (including the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner") continue to show journeys which have either been "WITHDRAWN" or are currently "SUSPENDED"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"

BEWARE
    The "School Term Weekends" afternoon Sherpa from Bangor has been re-timed in 2021 to arrive slightly later at Penygwryd - JUST MISSING the former " S4" connection
    This means it is NO LONGER possible to make a Saturday afternoon trip to Beddgelert
    Unfortunately,  this is yet another example of "failed" integrated timetable planning !!!!!
