Upcoming service changes will see "Coaster" service 1 extend to Wrekenton via Low Fell and Harlow Green, replacing service 24 and providing customers on this route with a direct service to Newcastle. Ahead of impending transfer to Percy Main Depot for this PVR increase, this vehicle has been repainted into a plain blue base livery. It is expected that the "Coaster" brand will be revised in line with the service changes, and the new brand design will focus on the coastal section of the route (Whitley Bay - North Shields).
