Go North East Fleet Go North East's 724
May 2019 Go North East
In line with service changes and the introduction of new brand identities, there were a large number of vehicle re-allocations which took place on Sunday 19 May, the significance of which have been likened to the South Shields and Bishop Auckland depot closures in 2005 and 2006 respectively. This vehicle has transferred from Crook Depot to Percy Main. Due to its non-standard interior and lower-specification seats, this vehicle should only be allocated to the Nexus-secured Whitley Bay local W1/W1A contracted services.
