To assist in the coverage of extra vehicle requirements over Bank Holiday weekend, which will see Go North East operating shuttle services for the Tall Ships event in Blyth, Cruise Ships, Kynren and the Soccerbus X50, this vehicle has transferred from Riverside Depot to Stanley.

July 2016 Go North East
Following use on the special Sunderland Airshow Park & Ride services, this vehicle has transferred from Deptford Depot to Riverside. Nexus is to embark on a second programme of Metro track replacement on its lines in North Tyneside, which will involve a 15-day Major Line Closure between Benton and Monkseaton from Saturday 23rd July 2016 to Saturday 6th August 2016. Whilst the line is closed, a frequent replacement bus service, numbered 900, will operate from Four Lane Ends through the affected area, calling at all Metro stations on the route. Go North East has been awarded with the contract, which will operate from Riverside Depot. To allow double-deck vehicles ordinarily allocated to Nexus Miscellaneous Works to be allocated to this Metro Replacement bus service, Riverside has received this vehicle and retained others which were scheduled to be withdrawn.
