This vehicle, which previously wore a special promotional livery for Go North East's now-obsolete Big Days Out campaign, has been repainted into Go North East's 2019 fleet livery. This also reflects the service changes which took place from Monday 1 June, whereby Coaster services 1, 1A and 1B were revised to operate every 20 minutes between Whitley Bay and Metrocentre (twice per hour as service 1A and once per hour as service 1B) with the service between Newcastle, Gateshead, Allerdene, Hertford and Wrekenton being replaced by revised service 25. The revised PVR of Coaster services 1A/1B is therefore now 13, reduced from 16.

From Monday 1 June 2020, in line with guidance from the government, Go North East's bus services will start returning to what can be considered a 'normal' level of service on weekdays (albeit still reduced on weekends), also with some minor changes which had originally been planned to take place from 17 May 2020. As such, this vehicle has now been reinstated at Percy Main.

This vehicle, which received a country-themed version of the Big Days Out livery on the "Angel" base livery, now acts a spare vehicle for the "Coaster" 1/1A services, which operate on a shared corridor with the "Angel" 21 service. To reduce potential confusion caused by a bus which looks similar to that of the new "Angel" branded Wright StreetDecks on the 21 service, this vehicle has had the front end of the bus painted blue so it looks more similar to the "Coaster" branded allocation.

Following the entry into service of new double-deck vehicles on "Angel" service 21, representing a £4.3 million investment, this vehicle has transferred from Chester-le-Street Depot to Percy Main. Retaining its promotional livery for the "Big Days Out" campaign, this vehicle will act as the dedicated spare vehicle for "Coaster" services 1/1A (Whitley Bay - Wallsend - Newcastle - Gateshead).

This vehicle has been stripped of "Angel" branding and has received a promotional livery for Go North East's "Big Days Out" campaign. The campaign, which was originally introduced in the summer of 2017 but will now be ongoing for the foreseeable future, has seen Go North East partner up with a number of attractions and businesses to bring its customers some great family offers. Customers who buy a £10 Family Day Ticket are eligible for discounts at venues involved in the partnership. This bus is one of four which will receive a promotional livery for the campaign - each example is different, with this one having a country theme. The livery intends to raise awareness of this campaign and the company's Family Day Ticket, which permits travel for up to two adults and three children under 16 in all zones. The introduction of this campaign has also seen the ticket price reduce from £13 to £10 on-bus (matching the cheaper price previously on the mobile app).
