Hackney Community Transport is the founding part of leading social enterprise HCT Group. Our aim is to help our community to get out and about. We provide Group Transport – a low cost alternative to minibus hire for community groups, including accessible vehicles, all of which are an alternative to minicab hire for people with disabilities or mobility difficulties, as well as everyone else in the community!. We also operate a scooter loan programme in Camden, and offer minibus driver training (MiDAS) and more.

  • About Hackney Community Transport Hackney Community Transport (HCT) was originally founded in 1982 when around 30 local community groups in the London Borough of Hackney pooled their vehicle resources, providing low cost minibuses to help our community to get out and about. Community is at the heart of what we deliver – from our main office staff through to our committed and passionate drivers.
  • Minibus hire – a low cost alternative: We provide community groups, clubs and non-profit organisations in Hackney with a financially supported scheme to access cheap minibuses - Group Transport. This service is financially supported by Hackney Council and by money reinvested from HCT Group’s commercial contracts.

  • Minibus driver training: We provide Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme (MiDAS) training, helping our community group members driver vehicles themselves, saving on having to hire a driver with their vehicle. This service is financially supported by Hackney Council and by money reinvested from HCT Group’s commercial contracts. For a one off charge of £20 for Hackney Groups and Organisations, you could have a member of your team or a volunteer trained to drive one of our minibuses to take you to your events and activities
