*** PRE BOOKING REQUIRED ***
On Thursdays and other selected dates through the summer holidays, the Greenway Shuttle Bus will connect you and your bike to the start of some of the best cycling routes in Southern Snowdonia.
2014 Operating Dates:
Take a shuttle to Dolgellau or Barmouth for the Mawddach Trail (the ‘Railway ride’). For a longer route, head up to Llyn Trawsfynydd for the South Snowdonia Greenway, or perhaps spend the day shredding the mountain bike trails at Coed y Brenin. Either way, the Shuttle service means that you can leave your car behind and take the opportunity to ride back home instead.
Check our ‘Whats included’, Exclusions and Cancellation Policy. Go to the ‘Book Now’ button and select your date and pick-up time from the options available (see timetable). Multi-stage journeys can be booked by selecting the appropriate stages from the menu. Please add all journey legs to your shopping cart before completing the transaction to ensure availability for each stage. If in doubt, give us a call on 01341 430628 and we can advise you of availability and take a booking over the phone. Please note that prices are for a one-way journey, so if you are not riding back, please select the appropriate return trip options.
Bookings must be accompanied by payment via Paypal to be secured. You do not need a Paypal account to do this, and can use a debit or credit card to make payment via Paypal. Bookings not accompanied by a payment will be cancelled.
Party Bookings: For bookings for 4 or more we may be able to arrange a local pick-up if you are close to the route and have suitable facilities for turning the bus. Please ring to discuss before booking. Subject to availability, we can also arrange a private day-hire of mini-bus, driver and bike trailer with prices as little as £30 per person. Contact us for further details.
Non-Standard Bikes: We aim to be as supportive of other non-standard bike formats as possible, but the thinking and juggling of options is beyond the scope of this online booking format. Please give us a ring to discuss your requirements, and we will do our best to find a solution, especially if you can be flexible with your timings.
Wheel-Chairs: We hit a bit of a brick wall with the question of wheel-chairs and bike-trailers. It seems that we can have a bus that will take one or the other but not both (ramp position possibly?). We are big fans of hand-cycling, and the Mawddach Trail is particularly fine for many levels of ability. If you can organise a wheel-chair carrying taxi to shadow the bus, and can organise someone to load and unload the bike (we ask our drivers not to be involved in the lifting), then we may be able to carry your hand-cycle. Again, give us a call and we will try and find a solution.
Exclusions: We cannot take an online booking to carry your bike if:
• it is an adult bike smaller than a 16" frame.
• It is a child's bike.
• It is a tandem.
• It has more than 2 wheels.
• It has tyres wider than 2.3 inches
• Bikes with full rear mudguards.
• you (or one of your party) are unable to lift it onto the trailer (the driver will indicate what you need to do, but will not be involved in lifting).
By prior arrangement we may be able to accommodate some of these challenges. Please contact us directly.
Transport of one suitable adult-sized two-wheel bike per customer is free with your ticket. Please check the exclusions list below to ensure your bike is suitable for the trailer. Please remove any pumps, bags and attachments that may work loose during transportation.
You (or one of your party) will have to be able to lift your bike onto the trailer, and make sure it is secure (the driver will show you how, but you will need to be happy about its loading). Please contact us if you are hoping to travel with none-standard bikes, and we will see what we can do.
Bikes are carried strictly at your own risk, and Greenway Shuttles will not be held responsible for any loss or damage to bike or accessories. Please ensure you are happy with how your bike is being transported before starting your journey. If you are at all unhappy with the transport of your bike and do not wish to travel, please inform the driver. We will be happy to refund the fare of anyone who does not travel. Please note this will be processed online and not by the driver.
If you cancel your booking more than 7 days in advance, we will give you a full refund.
If you cancel less than 7 days from your day of travel, for whatever reason, we will not reschedule your booking or refund your payment.
If you are not at your pick-up point at the departure time and the bus leaves without you, we will not reschedule your booking or refund your payment, and you will be responsible for organising your own onward transport.
We have sought to anticipate the kinds of bikes that will and won't fit on the trailer, and have detailed these in our exclusions. If, on the day, your bike will not fit on the trailer for reasons other than those listed under exclusions or you are not happy about the way the bikes are to be carried, and this can be confirmed to us by the driver, then we will offer a refund for you and anyone else detailed on your booking who does not travel as a result of this. We will not refund party members who continue their journey without you.
If we have to cancel your booking then we will offer a reschedule or a full refund. We reserve the right to change the bus schedule at any point. If the ammended schedule is not suitable for your plans then we will provide a full refund or reschedule.
