January 2018 Go North East
From 28th January 2018, Go North East are making changes to a number of services to improve reliability and to allow new travel opportunities.

The 88/88A services were previously operated by the low-cost unit at Riverside Depot, and to replace the work in this unit at Riverside, the operation of the "Metrocentre Mini" M6/M7/M8 services has transferred across from Stanley. As such, this vehicle has transferred from Stanley Depot to Riverside.
