July 2018 Go North East
This vehicle has been donated to Cleveland and Durham Police, which will act as a key training facility for over 100 firearms officers and commanders across both police forces, teaching them how to act when faced with crises and threats to the public. From hostage situations and working with negotiators, to containing a bus for the community’s safety and helping injured passengers, the vehicle provides a realistic space at the Police’s tactical training centre, to carry out essential exercises and set-ups. Officers will learn how to get on and navigate around the space of a bus, how to deal with subjects on-board, how to properly organise themselves when working in emergency incidents and how to react when found in a threatening situation. In return earlier this year, Cleveland and Durham Police delivered essential training to Go North East’s senior leadership team and will shortly be carrying out similar training to the company’s control room team, on handling potentially difficult scenarios.

To provide Riverside Depot with extra low-floor double-deck vehicles for the duration of the Metro Replacement contract, this vehicle has transferred from Riverside Depot to Stanley, in exchange for a low-floor Dennis Trident/Plaxton President from Stanley. This bus cannot be used in public service whilst at Stanley Depot, due to it not conforming with DDA / PSVAR requirements, but will be used instead on Staff Shuttle services between Stanley Depot, Stanley Bus Station and Consett Bus Station.

This vehicle has received "Yellow Bus" branding. "Yellow Bus" is Go North East's new brand for vehicles in the fleet which operate special services such as school buses, miscellaneous peak-time services and special event shuttle services. Yellow was adopted as a standard color for North American school buses beginning in 1939. The colour, which became known as "school bus yellow" in America, was selected because black lettering on that specific hue was easiest to see in the semi-darkness of early morning and late afternoon. For the same reasons, Go North East has adopted the idea for its own fleet.
