Following use on the temporary shuttle bus, numbered S25, in Eighton Banks and Wrekenton, this vehicle has transferred from Riverside Depot to Hexham. 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, as originally planned when it was previously allocated to Hexham.

Although not used at Hexham Depot during its time allocated there; this vehicle has transferred from Hexham Depot to Riverside, where it will see allocation to a free shuttle bus in operation between Monday 15th May and Friday 19th May, due to the X25 service being diverted between Wrekenton and Portobello as a result of a road closure at Eighton Banks. During this time, the X25 service will divert via Long Bank, A1 on-slip, A1, A1 off-slip and Mill House roundabout, with Newcastle bound services diverting from Portobello onto A1, Eighton Lodge roundabout and Long Bank to Wrekenton. The shuttle bus will run between Wrekenton Bus Link and Mill House Roundabout, connecting with the diverted X25 service.
