Another council controlled bus company is expected to cease trading today. Halton Transport is owned by Widnes council and prior to 1974 it was known as Widnes Corporation Transport. As of 24th January the business is due to close, and 24 of Halton's buses are reportedly being moved to the Gilmoss garage of Stagecoach on Friday night.

The demise of Halton Transport will leave just eight former municipal bus operators in business, Blackpool, Cardiff, Ipswich, Lothian, Newport, Nottingham, Reading and Warrington.
