Luas Franchise Agreement

    Does anyone have any details on the franchise agreement for operating the Luas?
    Like does Veolia simply receive a fixed fee for operating the system?
    Who decides on fares?
    Does the fare money go to Veolia or the RPA?

    Contract isn't public for "commercial reasons", RPA decide the fares.

    Veoilas payment depends on traffic volume and reliability/punctuality, from memory. Obviously they're being paid more now to operate more trams than before.
