This vehicle has received "MAX" branding, with sub-branding for service 306 (Whitley Bay - Tynemouth - North Shields - Coast Road - Newcastle). The combined 'up to every 7 minute' frequency with the "MAX" 308 service is promoted in the branding.

Following the completion of repaint and refurbishment to "MAX" specification, this vehicle has returned to service at Jesmond Depot.
April 2017 Arriva North East
This vehicle has moved from Jesmond to Jesmond (Under Repair), whilst being refurbished and repainted to "MAX" specification. It is thought that "Coastliner" services 306/308 are both being upgraded to "MAX" specification. The existing Volvo B5LH/Wright Eclipse Gemini 2 allocation will be retained on service 308, but service 306 will be revised to operate with VDL SB200/Wright Pulsar 2 vehicles, with the existing "Coastliner" branded Wright Streetlite DF/Wright Streetlite Max Micro-Hybrid allocation deployed elsewhere.

Due to a reduction in the number of engineering spare vehicles at Jesmond, and an increase in the PVR of the seasonal X18 service, this vehicle has transferred from Jesmond Depot to Ashington.

This vehicle has received "Frequenta" branding, with sub-branding for service 7 (Stockton - Yarm).
