In line with the operation of "See it, Do it, Sunderland" service 36 transferring from Deptford Depot to Chester-le-Street, this vehicle has also transferred to Chester-le-Street. Presently unbranded, they are due to receive "See it, Do it, Sunderland" branding imminently, with minor branding amendments. As a consequence, the existing "See it, Do it, Sunderland" branded Mercedes Citaros have temporarily taken up revised allocations at Deptford Depot. Service 61 will be allocated "See it, Do it" branded Mercedes Citaros, and one board on service 9 will be allocated a "See it, Do it" branded Mercedes Citaro, displacing one fleet livery Scania L94 to operate "SimpliCity" services 2/2A.

As Chester-le-Street do not have any Mercedes Citaros at the moment; service 36 will instead be allocated Optare Versas in a new blue base livery (albeit with amendments to the branding), which will standardise the vehicle types at each depot.
