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 re-licensed, but remains out of service.

Due to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, there is falling customer demand and available resources. Therefore, to ensure operations are as efficient as possible, Saltmeadows Road has been temporarily 'mothballed' as an operational depot, with the scholars services instead operating out of Riverside. As such, this vehicle has transferred from Saltmeadows Road Depot to Riverside.

October 2018 Go North East
Annual PSV tests on all of the recently acquired Volvo B7s are being completed by Volvo, rather than locally by Go North East, to alleviate pressure from the local engineering teams at depot level. As this does not include 6010 (V310 LGC) or 6033 (V333 LGC), these vehicles have transferred from Saltmeadows Road Depot to Riverside, with 6924 (LX54 GZB) & 6925 (LX54 GZC) moving the other way, meaning that all of the Volvo B7s at Saltmeadows Road have the PSV tests carried out by Volvo.
