March 2016 Go North East
This vehicle has lost its "Cobalt Connect" branding, having been repainted into a light blue base livery. Upcoming service changes in April 2016 will see "Whey Aye Five 0" service 50 interwork with service 5, which is currently operated by Riverside Depot. Both services will instead operate from Washington Depot and fall under the "Whey Aye Five 0" brand, providing a consistent brand identity for services 5 and 50 on the Boldon - West Harton - South Shields corridor. It is thought that this vehicle will be one of five to join the "Whey Aye Five 0" brand.
