March 2018 Go North East
In order to upgrade the "Blue Arrow" 11 service, which operates between Whitley Bay and the Metrocentre, via Wallsend, Newcastle and Gateshead, Scania CN230UB/Scania Omnicitys 5266 - 5273 are to be cascaded to the route in line with the entry into service of the former "Angel" branded Volvo B5LH/Wright Eclipse Gemini 2s on the "Coaster" 1/1A services. This allows passengers on this route to benefit from high-backed Esteban Civic V3 seating and the provision of free Wi-Fi, and will lead to the withdrawal of the Scania L94UB/Wright Solar vehicles currently allocated. Following repaint and prior to returning service at Percy Main, this vehicle has received "Blue Arrow" branding.
