Metropolitan train and tram franchise agreements

Added: 29 February 2016

The current franchise agreements for Melbourne's train and tram services expire in November 2017.

Both Metro Trains and Yarra Trams have satisfied the necessary conditions in the current contract, which give them the right to negotiate exclusively with Government to extend the franchise for a further seven years.

Should appropriate terms not be reached, Government may pursue alternative options.

Acting CEO, Jeroen Weimar
