As it is planned for this vehicle to be allocated to Percy Main Depot for use on "Cobalt Clipper" services 309/310, this vehicle has been repainted into a metallic silver base livery prior to entering service at Go North East. It has also been fitted with advertisement frames, so will only receive basic fleet names rather than being fitted with route branding.

As Optare were not able to repaint this vehicle on Go North East's behalf prior to delivery, Go North East will repaint it grey themselves, prior to entering service.
