Following a number of publicity events to promote the investment into new vehicles for services 45 and 46, this vehicle has entered service at Stanley Depot. On Sundays; when the PVR of the "Coast & Country" services is reduced, this vehicle will be allocated to service X71 (Consett - Newcastle). This provides customers on these services with premium features such as free Wi-Fi and power sockets, and the company can also claim for an enhanced rate of BSOG payment (an extra 6p per kilometre), thus making the Sunday operation of this service more commercially viable. In addition; when not required to cover for a branded vehicle on "Coast & Country" services 8/78 or "Red Kite" services 45/46, this vehicle will be allocated to services X43 on weekdays and the seasonal Beamish Museum 128 service on Saturdays.

May 2015 Go North East
This vehicle, which carries a red base livery, has arrived into the Go North East fleet, and is currently being prepared for service at Saltmeadows Road Depot. Once prepared for service, it is expected to be allocated to Stanley Depot, to act as a spare vehicle for services 45/46 (Newcastle - Consett), representing an investment of approximately £1,500,000. It is the Micro-Hybrid version of the Wright Streetlite, which is 11.5m in length. The Micro Hybrid recovers energy lost from braking to power the vehicle electrics and compressed air systems, saving up to 10% in fuel costs. The interior specification for this batch of vehicles has been completely overhauled: they feature Esteban Civic V3 seating complete with e-leather; two-colour Tarabus 'Wood Effect' flooring; and blue accent lighting, which is fitted underneath seats, to provide extra light on the gangway.
