Community transport

Hounslow Community Transport (HCT) is a longstanding registered local charity that provides the following services:

Minibus hire service

Provides safe, accessible and affordable transport to community and ethnic groups of every kind in the London Borough of Hounslow. HCT makes a meaningful contribution to reducing social exclusion and increasing access across Hounslow and places beyond that residents of Hounslow wish to visit.

All minibuses in the fleet are wheelchair accessible.


Shopmobility in Hounslow is a service that hires out battery-powered scooters, power chairs and manual wheelchairs to enable people to independently do their shopping and make visits in central Hounslow.

Shopmobility which is based in the Blenheim Centre in the underground car park below Asda offers full training on how to operate the mobility scooters.

More information on becoming a member and the fees.


MiDAS is a scheme to increase the competency of minibus drivers. It provides a nationally recognised standard for minibus drivers.

HCT provides affordable Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme (MiDAS) accredited training to individuals and organisations so that they can hire HCT or similar vehicles provided for hire by other organisations, or their own vehicles, for trips to be undertaken by residents of the borough.
