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 Consett.
May 2020 Go North East
With an expected announcement from the UK Government on Sunday 10 May to relax some of the current "lockdown" restrictions in the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, which could lead to an increased number of passengers travelling on Go North East's bus services, further re-allocations and service allocation revisions are being made, in order to increase social distancing on-board Go North East's bus services. This will include double-deck buses being allocated to services ordinarily allocated single-decks, and single-deck buses being allocated to those services which had been temporarily allocated minibuses for the duration of the crisis. Therefore this vehicle has been reinstated at Consett Depot.
April 2020 Go North East
Following completion of all required vehicle re-allocations; this vehicle has been temporarily withdrawn from service due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and has been officially delicensed (SORN'd), enabling Go North East to obtain a tax refund.

Prior to entering service, this vehicle has been repainted into a four-colour charcoal/grey and gold base livery. This four-colour combination will be used for the spare vehicles to be used on "X-lines" specification services. It has also been fitted with a buggy bay, as well as having free passenger Wi-Fi, audio-visual announcement passenger information systems and USB charging points installed.

This vehicle, previously with East Yorkshire as their 795, has joined the Go North East fleet where it has been allocated fleet number 6334. Go North East are in line to receive all four of East Yorkshire's former demonstrator vehicles, numbered 794 - 797 in their fleet, whilst East Yorkshire are to receive four Wright Eclipse Gemini bodied Volvo B9TLs, presently numbered 6118 - 6121 in the North East. This swap is taking place as 794 - 797 meet the stringent emission standards of the promised Clean Air or Low Emission Zone concepts recently consulted on (as they have Euro 6 engines), whereas 6118 - 6121 do not (as they have Euro 5 engines). It also standardises the fleet at both companies, with the Wrights bodied Volvo B5TLs being non-standard in the East Yorkshire fleet, whereas they'll be joining a fleet of seven already allocated to Riverside, in the North East. Volvo B9TLs 6118 - 6121 are also ex dealer-stock, so have a non-standard interior colourscheme and low-back seating, making them unsuitable for use on Go North East's "X-lines" express routes. Prior to acquisition by Go North East, East Yorkshire had already taken a batch of these dealer-stock Volvo B9s, so these additional four should fit in well in their fleet.
