As driving colleagues have faced issues navigating this vehicle around the route on the private scholars contract it is allocated to at Riverside, this vehicle has now transferred to Percy Main. After the school holidays, 6167-6169 will be swapped for three short wheelbase examples in the short-term (but the longer-term plan is to repaint the three black examples allocated to this contract previously, when there is a gap in the paint schedule to accommodate this). Alternative plans are being reviewed to combat the high passenger loadings (which was the reason for the allocation of the longer vehicles from September 2019).
