The X66 operates from Darlington depot and operates from Darlington to Middlesbrough every 20 minutes Monday to Saturday daytimes, the service runs from Darlington via North Road before running non-stop along the A66 up to Stockon High Street, then re-joining the A66 it then runs non-stop to Middlesbrough Bus Station. The X66 used Scania OmniCity CN94UB’s, these have been refurbished to MAX standard which includes Leather-seating and Wi-Fi connectivity, but unusually they have also gained Next-stop announcements as part of a fund from Darlington council so unlike the Sapphire brand the MAX brand can be a bit inconsistent. Like the other MAX services, the X66 also have a reserve vehicle in the form of 2 ex Liverpool Scania OmniCity CN94UB’s which are also refurbished to MAX standard but wear branding for the X66 and X26/X27 (other MAX’d services). 4657 GXM is shown wearing the X66 variation of the MAX livery working a service towards Middlesbrough.
