Snowdon Sherpa Bus Timetables


There are minor changes to the times of the Conwy Valley Railway Line trains
from Monday 16th May

In addition,  the mid-evening return train from Betws-y-Coed at 2052 is re-instated


This does NOT effect the times of any Sherpa journeys


    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the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner") continue to show journeys which have either been "CHANGED" or sometimes even "WITHDRAWN"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 - 16th May to 24th September 2022
except Public Holidays Late Spring Weekend Thursday 2nd June  Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday 3rd June and Late Summer Weekend Monday 29th August

  PLEASE NOTE..............
The last Monday to Saturday connecting Sherpa service back to Betws-y-Coed (for Llanrwst-Conwy-Llandudno) from Porthmadog departs at 1535 in the winter  
BUT thanks to Llew Jones SUSPENDING their evening Conwy Valley services..........
..........there is NO LONGER any evening BUS connection back along the Conwy Valley*  (however there are alternative "T10-5" connections via Bangor - "1 bws" tickets are valid)
    Don't Dispair
    In the unlikely event you are unfortunate enough to miss the 1535 "S97" Sherpa to Pen-y-Pass or you decide you wish to spend longer at Porthmadog..........
..........there is an alternative journey 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
