The once-weekly 'rail replacement' bus between Ealing Broadway and Wandsworth Road made its final run today. The service was put on to replace a train service between Birmingham and Brighton which ceased in 2008.

The ghost bus makes its final journey after four years, dubbed one of the most pointless transport services in the country.
The once-weekly 'rail replacement' bus between Ealing Broadway and Wandsworth Road.
The service was put on to "replace" a train service between Birmingham and Brighton which ceased in December 2008, leaving two short sections of track in West London with no scheduled train services.
What seems as a move to avoid the hassle of a formal closure process, and to allow officials to argue that the train line had remained open and avoid a public consultation on closing unused sections of track, this completely useless token weekly bus was put on at a cost to taxpayers of £500 a week.
– Department for Transport spokesperson
“The previous Government chose to require the operation of a rail replacement bus service between Ealing Broadway and Wandsworth Road rather than going through the full service closure process.
“After a detailed review of the situation, the Department concluded the service did not offer value for money for the taxpayer and has since gone through the necessary consultation process to allow its closure.”
