May 2018 Go North East
New in December 2012 to Courtney Coaches, Bracknell, this vehicle was recently returned to the lessor (Dawson Group) and has now been acquired by Go North East, where it has received fleet number 719. It is one of a batch of 8 pre-owned Optare Solos being acquired by Go North East, due to a shortage of minibuses following the award of contracts. This example is of a more ‘premium’ specification, featuring high-back Civic V3 seats with black leather headrests, and is also fitted with Next Stop Announcements. It also features a full colour front destination display, a feature fairly unique to the Go North East fleet, with long-term loan demonstrator Optare Versa V1170 Hybrid/Optare 9084 (YJ64 DZM) being the only other bus in the fleet to have such a destination display.
