Powells/CT Plus services to cease

Last updated: Wednesday 10 August 2pm

HCT Group has announced their Powells and CT Plus bus companies will close and services will stop running from Monday 8 August.

Originally founded as Hackney Community Transport in 1982, HCT Group was established in 2008. It operates 19 services across South Yorkshire from its Powells depot in Hellaby, employing around 50 staff.

We’re working tirelessly with local authorities and operators to provide alternative services, where possible, to keep you moving. We are committed to keeping customers informed and this page updated as these plans develop. 

Timetables for replacement services will be added to our Service Changes page as and when they are confirmed.
