Pont-y-Pant railway station is a single platform passenger station in the Lledr Valley, Wales, on the Conwy Valley Line from Llandudno Junction to Blaenau Ffestiniog, which is operated by Transport for Wales. The station house is well maintained and used as a private dwelling.
There is no local village but the station serves a number of nearby isolated properties, and is also useful to walkers, owing to its proximity to a surviving section of the Sarn Helen Roman road, and to the nearby village of Dolwyddelan.
Five southbound and six northbound trains call on request Mon-Sat (approximately every three hours), with three trains each way on Sundays between May and early September. As of March 2019 however, the service is suspended and replaced by buses due to major flood damage in the Llanrwst area caused by Storm Gareth on 16 March 2019. The line is likely to remain closed for several months whilst repairs are carried out. It is now scheduled to reopen throughout in late July 2019.
