  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

LATEST..........
The 1010 Tuesday and Saturday "70" journey from Corwen has been
retimed EARLIER to start at 1005 - in order to provide "proper"
onward connections to both Llanberis (S2) and Llandudno (X19)
There are minor changes to other Conwy Valley connecting "19" services

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

09.10 - Sherpa connection    
$$$ - on local (Llanrwst) School Days only,  this "19" journey terminates at Llanrwst school - passengers requiring onward connections are advised to alight at the Birmingham Garrage stop (immediately after the 'Hump-Back' river bridge)    
and either join the "70" there (or walk back round the corner to Watling Street - where there is a shelter)
   
% - whilst in theory is is possible to catch the 0958 "55" at Corwen - as it is less than 5 minutes it is NOT recognised as a connection by the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner"    
(however, if you do, it will get you to Llangollen earlier than waiting for the "T3" 1010 departure)    
  LSch - Llanrwst School Days only       LSH - Llanrwst School Holidays only    
# - unless the "70" is running 'spot on time' - you are advised to alight at Corwen Old Station and catch the "T3" from across the road (dep 1001)    
@@ - Remember the "70" bus will only operate beyond Betws-y-Coed if there are passengers on the bus at that point    
R - on request to the driver at or before Betws-y-Coed    
$ - if the "70" does not have to serve all the request locations, you may be lucky enough to catch the earlier "T3" departure at 1730
