The railway's response to this threat was two fold: the construction of railmotor halts at Monkton Came, Radipole and Upwey Wishing Well.
There was even the threat in Weymouth, where several tramways combine, of having plans to construct a system. Additionally there was a scheme proposed jointly by Weymouth Corporation and Portland UDC to lay a tramway from Upwey through Weymouth to Portland.
The railways were also questioning their function in providing bus services, which resulted in the GWR bus services being taken over by various established operators.
The service was expanded in 1921 when for a short period it was extended to Upwey, Chickerell and Preston.
However, following competition by a number of small operators who had sprung up, the GWR reverted to their original service. Additionally, the arrival of Road Motors of Luton in 1921 and the National Omnibus Transport Company in 1925 added to the completion. Road Motors Nike Air Max 95 Sneakers

This allowed another operator to provide the service, which was expanded, although it was a short lived affair.
However, the railway companies had obtained a substantial financial share in the various larger bus companies and following the acquisition of Portland Express during 1936, Southern National became the sole operator of bus services in the Weymouth area.
In 1929 NOTC was divided up and the Dorset part became Southern National with the final GWR service that at Weymouth absorbed into the newly formed Southern National from January 1 1934, thus ending the direct operation of buses by the Great Western Railway.

The original GWR service returned on July 22, 1912 this time operated jointly by the GWR and LSWR, which continued despite the difficulties of the First World War.
The Southern Times, following the progress with enthusiasm, stated that two steam Railmotors Nos. 3 and 51 had been allocated to Weymouth, with no 51 commencing the service on May 1, 1905 working the 7.40am Weymouth Abbotsbury and the 9.50am Weymouth Dorchester, well before the halts were completed.
Upwey Wishing Well and Monkton Came halts closed in January 1957, Radipole surviving because it was situated in a well populated part of Weymouth.
