To provide Riverside Depot with extra low-floor double-deck vehicles for the duration of the Metro Replacement contract, this vehicle has transferred from Riverside Depot to Stanley, in exchange for a low-floor Dennis Trident/Plaxton President from Stanley. This bus cannot be used in public service whilst at Stanley Depot, due to it not conforming with DDA / PSVAR requirements, but will be used instead on Staff Shuttle services between Stanley Depot, Stanley Bus Station and Consett Bus Station.

This vehicle has received "Yellow Bus" branding. "Yellow Bus" is Go North East's new brand for vehicles in the fleet which operate special services such as school buses, miscellaneous peak-time services and special event shuttle services.
