This vehicle has entered service at Hexham Depot. It will be allocated to "Tynedale Links" services X81/185/681 to compare against the low-carbon emission Optare Solo SRs currently allocated to these services, and to compare against the Mercedes Benz/Sprinter City 45 demonstrator minibuses trialled on these routes earlier in the year.

Following the demonstration of two Mercedes Benz/Sprinter City 45 vehicles, 9095 (BT15 KLZ) and 9097 (BT66 TZM), earlier this year, Go North East has acquired a further minibus for demonstration trials. This example is designed and built by the UK-based Mellor Coachcraft. The vehicle's lightweight design and construction methodology coupled with an efficient sprinter drive train equals a class leading fuel economy of up to 22mpg. Its small length and width allows operation in narrow streets, housing estates with parked cars or rural lanes, without compromising passenger numbers, allowing up to 21 seated passengers.
