Armed with a pair of scissors and dressed in his very own bus driver uniform; 11-year-old schoolboy Peter Witham landed his dream job thanks to a heart-felt letter to Go North East's Managing Director, and cut the ribbon at a publicity launch at Crimdon Dene to declare the 14 brand new indiGo buses officially open for business. Following the publicity launch, this vehicle entered service at Peterlee Depot.

This vehicle, which carries a plain pink base livery, has arrived into the Go North East fleet. It is currently being prepared for service at Saltmeadows Road Depot. Representing an investment of approximately £1,800,000, Go North East has ordered fourteen Optare Solo SR minibuses to be launched on the "East Durham" network of services at Peterlee Depot. The services will be re-branded as "indiGo", promoting connections to Durham, Sunderland, Newcastle, Middlesbrough and beyond. These brand new buses feature Esteban Civic V3 seating complete with e-leather; two-colour Tarabus 'Wood Effect' flooring; and blue accent lighting, which is fitted underneath seats, to provide extra light on the gangway. They are also fitted with free passenger Wi-Fi and Next Stop Announcements.
