OC1 was the second Optare MetroCity built- although this was the first to be built to 10.6m long. It first demonstrated with London United, at AV. It operated alongside their new MetroCity EVs on route H98, from September 2014 until January 2015.

It reappeared once more in March that year with Quality Line, still with the fleet number OC1, and mostly worked routes 411 and 465. Following the renumbering of all of Quality Line’s vehicles, it gained the fleet number OML20240. It remained at EB up until February 2019.

Following a repaint, it was delivered to Go Coach on the 7th of June 2019, where it gained the fleet number 6202. It was their second MetroCity in the fleet, and was joined by another, the first MetroCity built (YJ14BFY), in 2021.
