This vehicle has received a special promotional livery for the "Poetry in Motion" campaign, as part of this year's World Poetry Day. It showcases poems by Newcastle-based writer, Anna Woodford. Seven of Anna’s pieces are emblazoned on the bus livery, each based on a three-year study called Co-Motion. Led by York University with Newcastle University, the project examined the link between mobility and well-being of over 55's living in Northumberland, York and Leeds.
