To alleviate car park capacity issues within the nPower grounds at Rainton Bridge Business Park, a Park & Ride scheme was set up in September 2014. The Park & Ride services demonstrated an ongoing partnership between Go North East and nPower, following on from the already established relationship the companies have with each other. The services are not accessible by the public and only nPower employees can use them. The Park & Ride scheme was withdrawn on Sunday 17th April 2016, which has allowed this vehicle to be withdrawn from service at Deptford Depot.
