Last summer; Go North East invested over £1.6 million in new electronic ticket machines with the ability to accept contactless payment methods, to make getting the bus even easier for people in the region. Unveiled during last year's "Catch the Bus Week" (3rd - 9th July 2017), Go North East hopes the versatility and stress-free nature of contactless will drive passenger numbers across its Tyne and Wear, Northumberland, County Durham and Tees Valley services. Now in its fourth year, Catch the Bus Week raises awareness of the associated health, economic and environmental benefits of bus travel, while aiming to drive long-term travel change. To support the company's ongoing marketing campaign to advertise the ability to pay by contactless on Go North East buses, this vehicle has received a special promotional livery. Emblazoned with the large tagline, "Hop, Tap, Go!"; this vehicle intends to serve as a mobile advertisement for non-bus users who were previously worried about having incorrect change, or who were put off by the ticket-buying process, and now may be more inclined to just pop on the bus.

Prior to receiving branding, this vehicle has entered service at Chester-le-Street Depot. Primarily acting as a spare vehicle for "Angel" service 21, this vehicle will also be used at Crook Depot, in the event that a "Castles Express" branded Wright StreetDeck is unfit for service. If all of the branded allocation on both "Angel" service 21 and "The Castles Express" service X21 are on the road, then this vehicle will be allocated to other double-deck services at Chester-le-Street Depot, in order to maximise the amount of mileage operated by this fuel-efficient vehicle eligible for extra BSOG payments.

This vehicle, which carries a light blue base livery, has arrived into the Go North East fleet. It is currently being prepared for service at Saltmeadows Road Depot. As part of the £4.3 million investment to upgrade the "Angel" service 21, which is currently allocated Wright Eclipse Gemini 2 bodied Volvo B5LHs, partially funded by a grant of £1,119,235 in Round 3 of the Green Bus Fund in 2012, Go North East has also ordered two dedicated spare vehicles to the same internal specification as the branded ones. This has been done to ensure customers on the 21 service can enjoy an undisrupted and continually high-quality service. These vehicles feature the latest technology, and are fitted with the third generation of Wrightbus' Micro-Hybrid system. This system allows a 21% fuel and CO2 saving; and is achieved by carrying through the technologies from the previous two generations of the Micro-Hybrid systems, as well as additional features being added, such as a third smart alternator to power new electric features such as an electric air compressor, which reduces engine load and fuel consumption. As well as this, the vehicles feature Euro 6 stop/start engines. Internally; they feature Esteban Civic V3 seating complete with leather and soft topper foam for added comfort; four tables on the upper saloon; two-colour Tarabus 'Wood Effect' flooring; and blue accent lighting, which is fitted underneath seats and on the stairwell, to provide extra light on the gangway. A first for Go North East; this batch of vehicles also includes a glass staircase, for added style and again providing further light on the stairwell. Like all new vehicles; they feature Wi-Fi, 'Next Stop' audio-visual announcements and USB connections as standard, though these vehicles also feature three-pin power sockets on the upper saloon tables.
