Following the transfer of Volvo Olympian/Northern Counties Palatine 2 3830 (S830 OFT) from Stanley Depot to Riverside to evaluate suitability as a replacement vehicle for Volvo Olympian/Northern Counties Palatine 2 3824 (S824 OFT) which requires a new gearbox, it has been found that the former requires floor repairs, so this vehicle has also transferred from Stanley Depot to Riverside for the same purpose.

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. Yellow was adopted as a standard color for North American school buses beginning in 1939. The colour, which became known as "school bus yellow" in America, was selected because black lettering on that specific hue was easiest to see in the semi-darkness of early morning and late afternoon. For the same reasons, Go North East has adopted the idea for its own fleet.

This vehicle was previously in the fleet back in March 2016 for a one-month period, when it was allocated to Deptford Depot to evaluate performance against the Wright Streetlite Micro-Hybrid vehicle type on "Prince Bishops" services 20/20A. It was returned to Optare after one month, but has now joined the Go North East fleet again for further demonstration trials.
