Following on from the fitment of free customer Wi-Fi to all of the Scania CN230UB/Scania Omnicity buses which operate services 5 and 50, this vehicle has also been fitted with free customer Wi-Fi to ensure the quality of service provided to passengers is maintained on services 4, 5 and 50, for which these vehicles act as spare vehicles for. This contributes towards Go North East's project to upgrade every service in the Washington and South Tyneside areas with free Wi-Fi.

New to Southern Vectis in June 2007 as fleet number 457, this vehicle was previously in the fleet of Bluestar as fleet number 2457. It was released from Bluestar in line with the upgrade of the "Unilink" services to brand new Dennis Trident 2/Alexander Enviro 400MMC vehicles, which has seen the re-allocation of the current "Unilink" vehicles to service 17 to allow the withdrawal of this batch of Mercedes Citaros.
