This vehicle, which carries a plain pink base livery, has arrived into the Go North East fleet. It is currently being prepared for service at Saltmeadows Road Depot. It will be transferred to Washington Depot in due course. Representing an investment of approximately £950,000; Go North East has ordered seven Optare Solo SR minibuses to upgrade its 82/82A/82B/83 services, operating from Washington Depot. The services will be re-branded as "indiGo", similar to the batch of Optare Solo SR minibuses which entered service at Peterlee Depot in August 2015, and then the later batch which entered service at Percy Main Depot in March 2016. These brand new buses 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. They are also fitted with free passenger Wi-Fi and Next Stop Announcements.
