Following service changes in May 2019 which resulted in service X5 being re-routed via Silksworth to partially replace service 36, this service was re-numbered 55. As such, this service has been removed from the "Wear Xpress" brand and hence the vehicle allocation needs to be repainted into the company's fleet livery.
