Ealing residents awoke to a blanket of snow this morning which brought delight to snowball-fighting children but frustrated workers struggling through transport chaos.
Bus services are cancelled and both underground and overground rail are severely delayed.
A Transport London Spokesman said: "We took the decision to withdraw bus services on safety grounds as of 12.10am. We're not sure when they will be restored but it'll only be when it's safe to do so."
Bus routes are being reviewed on a case by case basis with those travelling along major roads being the most likely to be restored first. The council are helping clear entrances to depots to help buses get underway and its gritters are working around the clock.
Underground services are operating on the Central Line but the Circle Line is suspended and no trains are running west of Earl's Court on the District Line.
The Piccadilly Line is suspended from Acton Town to Uxbridge.
Most schools in the borough are shut including Southfield Primary, Viking Primary, East Acton Primary, Berrymede Infants, Hambrough Primary, Wolf Fields Primary, John Perryn Primary, Clifton Primary, St Gregory's Primary, Greenwood Primary and Wood End Infants and Junior School.
Only emergency visits by social workers are being carried out, Heller House respite centre will be closed this evening and the Youth Offending Team is shut.
Adult day centres are closed and Ealing Council will continue to provide essential services for the vulnerable elderly people.
All libraries are currently closed and refuse and recycling services are suspended.
