Our Hounslow hub was opened in 1913 on the former site of Hounslow Town station. It has, of course, been updated, expanded and renovated since then and is a modern operations centre for a dense network of routes. As well as being the first location in London to run low-floor buses, the base began a small trial of four electric buses in 2014. The buses ran until 2020 and provided much useful information about zero emissions operation, which we shared with Transport for London.
Manpreet joined Hounslow Garage in 2007 as a Garage Support Assistant. She had only recently graduated from university at the time and was exploring career options but once she started working in the busy, ever-changing environment of a bus garage she didn’t want to work anywhere else!
Keen to learn more about the bus industry, she carried out several managerial roles before her promotion to General Manager of Hounslow and Hounslow Heath in 2022. Manpreet grew up in Greater London and enjoys working with people from diverse backgrounds. During her career she has developed staff members who have gone on to take on major roles within the company.
“I’d love to see more women in senior roles,” said Manpreet “I’ll always commit to ensuring that the garages I run will be more inclusive to women at all levels who are pursuing their careers.”
