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. It should be primarily allocated to the staff shuttle service running between Hownsgill Depot and Consett Bus Station, allowing better social distancing measures for the employees that need to use these services.
