Following recent service changes which saw the PVR of the "indiGo North Tyne" services rise by three vehicles, this vehicle has received "indiGo North Tyne" branding. It lacks the Wi-Fi and Next Stop Announcement feature 'blobs' as featured on the new Optare Solo SR M925/Optare vehicles which entered service earlier this year, as it does not yet have either of these features.

Having previously carried "Nexus" branding, this vehicle has been repainted into a plain pink base livery. There are a number of changes to Go North East's services in the North Tyneside and surrounding areas, from 24th July 2016. Pheonix Coaches has been awarded with the contract to operate the entire Whitley Bay Town Network from both Go North East (W1/W1A and W3) and Arriva (59/359 and W2). As a result of losing the contract to operate the W1/W1A and W3 services, the four "Nexus" branded Optare Solo SRs which Go North East currently allocate to this service will be repainted pink. These four Optare Solos will join the "indiGo North Tyne" brand, due to changes associated with the services encompassed within this brand.

A low-cost unit - operational from 27th July 2014 - has been set up at Percy Main Depot which sees the transfer of "Nexus" branded Optare Solo SR M890s 625 (NK11 HBB), 627 (NK61 DBY) and 631 (NK61 FEU) from Saltmeadows to Percy Main. The work which moves with these vehicles includes the Monday - Saturday operation of services W1/W1A and W3, in addition to the Sunday operation of Nexus-secured services 32/32A.

Pending delivery of the new Optare Solo SR M890 Hybrid/Optare vehicles for "Sunderland Connect" service 700, this vehicle has temporarily entered service at Deptford Depot. It has not yet received any branding, though a vinyl has been added to the windows, acting as a 'countdown' to the arrival of the new Hybrid vehicles.

This vehicle, which carries a grey and red base livery, has arrived into the Go North East fleet, and is currently being prepared for service at Saltmeadows Road Depot. Due to a problem at the DVLA with registering this vehicle, and the introduction of the new '61' mark registration plates from September, it has been allocated a new registration mark (NK61 DBY) and has surrendered its original registration mark (NK11 FWV).
