In line with service changes and the introduction of new brand identities, there were a large number of vehicle re-allocations which took place on Sunday 19 May, the significance of which have been likened to the South Shields and Bishop Auckland depot closures in 2005 and 2006 respectively. This vehicle has transferred from Riverside Depot to Peterlee. At Peterlee, this vehicle should be allocated to the Miscellaneous Works contract which operates at peak-times only. Outside of these times, the vehicle should be allocated to the Staff Shuttle service at Peterlee.

Due to the bodywork of this vehicle being in poor condition and the requirement to bring it up to a better standard in line with the vehicle's annual MOT test, this vehicle has been repainted into Go North East's corporate livery. This example carries the tagline "Recharge your batteries | Many of our buses have power sockets on board". It is expected that another vehicle in the fleet will receive a new and refreshed version of the promotional livery to support the Royal British Legion and to honour the centenary year of the end of World War 1.
