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 2019 fleet livery.

January 2018 Go North East
From 28th January 2018, Go North East are making changes to a number of services to improve reliability and to allow new travel opportunities. As part of these service changes; service 9 was curtailed at Jarrow Bus Station, instead running to Lukes Lane Estate, via Argyle Street, Lyon Street, Hebburn Town Centre, Hartleyburn Estate and Monkton Lane Estate, replacing this section of services 88/88A. To replace the section of service 9 between Jarrow and North Shields, "Whey Aye Five 0" service 5 was extended from Jarrow to North Shields via the Tyne Tunnel, no longer serving Jarrow Morrisons. This resulted in a PVR increase on "Whey Aye Five 0" services 5/50 by 1 vehicle, with this bus being selected to transfer to Washington to cover the increase in vehicle requirements on the 5/50 services. Following repaint and prior to transfer to Washington Depot, this vehicle has received "Whey Aye Five 0" branding.
