Go North East Fleet Go North East's 8328
January 2017 Go North East
This vehicle has been treated to a partial repaint into Go North East's new corporate livery. The new livery design is a a lot more eye-catching and features a two-tone base livery, with the traditional key colour of red towards the front of the bus, and non-metallic dark blue towards the back. It is thought that further vinyls will be added at a later date, in order to reflect the quality and customer values of Go North East.

This vehicle has been repainted into Go North East's corporate livery. Following funding withdrawals from Newcastle City Council and Gateshead Council, the future of the "QuayLink" services (which Go North East operates under contract to Nexus) was unknown. It was announced earlier this year that Go North East has stepped in to save the "QuayLink", and, from 26th July 2015, will operate the services commercially. The services will be revised to expand upon Go North East's current network of services. The current "QuayLink" Q1 service from Newcastle Central Station to Gateshead will merge with "The Orbit" branded 51/52 services, and will be re-numbered Q1/Q2. The current "QuayLink" Q2 service from Newcastle Haymarket Bus Station to St Peter's Basin will be merged with "Great Park & Ride" service X40, and will be re-numbered Q3. As such, all of the "QuayLink" and "The Orbit" branded vehicles will be repainted with a fresh coat of yellow and the branding will be revised accordingly. The two former Deptford-based "SimpliCity" branded Optare Versas will also be repainted as part of this scheme and the rise in the combined PVR of the current "The Orbit" and "QuayLink" branded services.
