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 Riverside.

In order to isolate dual-door configuration buses at Saltmeadows, where they should only be allocated to Nexus Miscellaneous Works services, the scholars contracts at Riverside will now instead be operated from Saltmeadows. Provincial specification vehicles will instead be allocated to contracts from Riverside, where they are more likely to be allocated to services on the frontline core commercial network between schools, on weekends, and during school holidays. As such, this vehicle has transferred from Saltmeadows Road Depot to Riverside.

Following the removal of the "Northern" branding from this vehicle, it has now been treated to a partial repaint into Go North East's new corporate livery. The new livery design is a a lot more eye-catching and features a two-tone base livery, with the traditional key colour of red towards the front of the bus, and non-metallic dark blue towards the back. It is thought that further vinyls will be added at a later date, in order to reflect the quality and customer values of Go North East.

This vehicle has received "Northern" branding, which is the new brand name for services 6 and X70/X71. As part of recent service changes, new service 6 was introduced as a replacement for the northern section of the old "Diamond" 43/44 services, so the name is appropriate for the route as well as commemorating the company's heritage with a fresh modern outlook on the "Northern" name.
