Fastbus was a proposed orbital, limited-stop bus service in North-West London.

It is proposed to run between Wembley Park station and North Acton station.

Proposal

The scheme is promoted by the business group Park Royal Partnership and supported by the London Borough of Brent and London Borough of Ealing. Fastbus stops might be located at:

  • Wembley Park station
  • Wembley Arena
  • Wembley Stadium
  • Wembley Triangle
  • Stonebridge Park station
  • Grand Union (where Abbey Road, Park Royal crosses the Grand Union Canal)
  • Park Royal station (on Coronation Road, Park Royal. New Central line platforms have been proposed at this station)
  • Central Middlesex Hospital / Asda Park Royal
  • North Acton tube station

with possible extension to Acton Main Line station.

A new road in Park Royal, near the Diageo 'First Central' business park, has been built with bus lanes, in anticipation of the new service. As of mid-2009, there has been no support for the proposal by Transport for London.
