Bushbury railway station was a railway station opened by the London and North Western Railway on 2 August 1852. It served the Bushbury area of Wolverhampton, and near to the junction of Showell Road and Bushbury Lane.

The station was located within the Bushbury Junction complex, and was between the Grand Junction line to Wednesfield Heath and the later Stour Valley Line to Wolverhampton High Level; and just to the north of the connecting line to Wolverhampton Low Level.

The station closed in 1912. The West Midlands Local Transport Plan of 2000 recommended that a study should be made into reopening a station at Bushbury, although this is likely to be to the north of the original site on Three Tuns Lane.
