With most scholars services in Tyne & Wear returning to operation from Monday 15 June, re-allocations have taken place to accommodate the operation of all of these services. Services 13 and 25 at Chester-le-Street will now be operated by single-deck vehicles to assist in the release of double-deck vehicles for scholars. This is one of the vehicles which have been released as a consequence, and has therefore transferred from Chester-le-Street Depot to Riverside.
June 2020 Go North East
From Monday 1 June 2020, in line with guidance from the government, Go North East's bus services will start returning to what can be considered a 'normal' level of service on weekdays (albeit still reduced on weekends), also with some minor changes which had originally been planned to take place from 17 May 2020. As such, this vehicle has now been reinstated at Riverside.
April 2020 Go North East
Following completion of all required vehicle re-allocations; this vehicle has been temporarily withdrawn from service due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and has been officially delicensed (SORN'd), enabling Go North East to obtain a tax refund.
March 2020 Go North East
Due to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, there is falling customer demand and available resources. Therefore, to combat this during these unprecedented times, Go North East has reduced its service levels from Monday 23 March to run enhanced Sunday timetables rather than the full normal weekday output (Sunday service levels, plus some extra morning journeys for key workers, and a small number of contracted school/works services). As such - due to the lower number of vehicles being required at the moment - a number of transfers have taken place to ensure services are operated by the most fuel-efficient, economic and reliable buses. One such transfer is of this vehicle from Chester-le-Street Depot to Riverside, in order to operate scholars services.

Following changes to Nexus Miscellaneous Works and scholars contracts, which has seen Go North East being awarded with over 70 of the available contracts, this vehicle has transferred from Chester-le-Street Depot to Riverside. It has been allocated to Riverside to operate the newly awarded contracts at Riverside, and should see primary allocation to those scholars services which later run onto Go North East's own commercial services which operate higher frequencies at peak-times (such as the X21 and 10X) due to the better internal quality of this vehicle and lack of a centre-door.

This example has been fitted with the tagline "Stay Connected | Many of our buses have free WiFi on board". It is planned for both Volvo B7TL/Wright Eclipse Gemini 3962 (JCN 822) and 3965 (574 CPT) to remain at Chester-le-Street and be allocated to the two double-deck boards on services 13/14/X25, to provide a higher quality vehicle on these services following the upgrade of the single-deck boards to higher-quality Scania L94UB/Wright Solar vehicles late last year, and will ultimately lead to the withdrawal of further ex-London Plaxton President bodied Volvo B7TLs from Chester-le-Street's fleet.
