We have been informed by Transport for London (TfL) that we have been awarded the contract for an additional London red bus route – Route 616.

Route 616 is a school service operating between Winchmore Hill and Edmonton Green. It will operate on double deck vehicles with a Peak Vehicle Requirement of 2.

The route has been awarded on electric double deck vehicles – these will be the first electric vehicles permanently operated by HCT Group, representing a real milestone in our journey to reduce emissions.   The electric vehicles will mostly be used on Route 20 to make the most out of their positive environmental impact.

We are due to take over the service in February 2021

The news is a testament to the combined effort of all staff involved in our red bus operation – driving staff, operations staff, engineering, management and support staff.  Our continued focus on providing a safe, reliable and efficient service is leading to greater opportunities to expand our work in London.
