With route branding across the network being reviewed, services 5 and 50 (currently branded "Whey Aye Five 0") are the next routes to lose route branding. This three-quarter life repaint into Go North East's fleet livery reflects the interworking of service 50 with the 5, the fit in of these services in Go North East's network, and the age of the Scania OmniCity fleet. As such this vehicle has now been repainted into Go North East's corporate livery. This example carries the tagline "It's our fantastic people - all 2000 of them - that make the wheels on our buses go round and round".

In order to enhance the quality of service provided to passengers on services 5 and 50, this vehicle has been fitted with free customer Wi-Fi. This contributes towards Go North East's project to upgrade every service in the Washington and South Tyneside areas with free Wi-Fi.

With the operation of "Whey Aye Five 0" service 50 transferring to Washington Depot as part of service changes effective Sunday 17th April 2016, this vehicle has transferred from Percy Main Depot to Washington.
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.

To complement recent marketing of brand new money-saving tickets on the "Cobalt Connect" 19 service, which are available for £19.50 and offer unlimited travel for seven days on the "Cobalt Connect" 19 service, the vehicles allocated to the service are to undergo extensive refurbishment. This vehicle is the first of the batch to be refurbished, with assistance from 'Go Smarter'. It has been sent to Thorntons Brothers, Ashington, and the refurbishment includes all seats being re-trimmed, flooring being painted grey, and new-style LED lighting in the saloon of the vehicle being installed.
