About Us

HCT Group is a social enterprise in the transport industry, safely providing over 12 million passenger trips on our buses every year. We deliver a range of transport services – from London red buses to social services transport, from school transport to Park and Ride, from community transport to education and training. We reinvest the profits from our commercial work into further transport services or projects in the communities we serve.

In 1993, with traditional grants under threat, we came to the realisation that the best way to become a sustainable social enterprise was to become an effective enterprise. We began to compete for commercial contracts in the marketplace to ensure we could continue to provide community transport.

This approach has seen HCT Group grow from a handful of volunteers and a couple of minibuses, with a turnover of £202k in 1993 – to a large scale social enterprise with over 700 employees, eleven depots spread across London, Yorkshire, Humberside and the Southwest, a fleet of over 370 vehicles and a 2010/11 turnover of £28.1m.
