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.

Following the entry into service of new double-deck vehicles on "Angel" service 21, representing a £4.3 million investment, this vehicle has been repainted into Go North East's corporate livery. 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.
