JOIN BOOK DRIVE _ AMBASSADORS

Posted: 17 Jun 2016

Ambassador Role

HCT Group is the world’s leading transport social enterprise. We earn money by delivering transport contracts, won in the marketplace- these include London red buses, Leeds school transport, Bristol Park and Ride and many other services. We deliver over 20 million passenger trips on our buses every year.

We reinvest our profits into further transport service and projects in the communities we serve.

Our latest project is to provide fully wheelchair accessible minibuses, parked at convenient locations near you and available to hire online, day and night.
