Gwynedd independent Padarn Bus has retained the contract to operate the Snowdon Sherpa service for the next five years.

“We’ve won the contract for a further five years. As well as running the buses, we have taken over the management of the car parks, which increases its sustainability,” Padarn Bus director Dave Hulme told CBW.

“The council will now be paying for school journeys and little extras. It’s a win-win for all. The authority has slashed its administration costs and for our customers, it means the service should remain unscathed from cuts.”

In a separate development, in the wake of the BSOG cut announcement, Padarn Bus has announced its intention to revise certain journeys on three services.
