The thought of a decker 33 turning up in Ealing certainly appeals to the enthusiast in me! I haven’t ridden or observed the 65 through South Ealing for a long time. Does it really need that much help at all times of the day? Wouldn’t 2-3 extra buses running between Ealing and Richmond during the day solve the problem?
Anyhow, if we’re going to get creative with support for the 65, I would extend the 94 to Ealing Broadway once its lopped back to Marble Arch as part of the Crossrail changes. Buses would run via Chiswick Business Park and Chiswick High Road before joining the 65 from Kew Bridge. Peak frequency reduced to every 8-9 minutes. To make space at Ealing I would extend the E9 to Acton Market Place. This would provide the 207 with some assistance between Acton and Ealing once the 427 has been diverted to Southall Station.
Dont need any more buses between Ealing and Acton you forgot 607 which is always busy. The problem with 65 is that 2 come along almost simultaneously then theres a long wait for next one. This has been happening for a long time so another bus especially between Brentford and Ealing Bdy would help
