Does anyone know if the revenue from the sale of cross-border tickets is retained by the operator that sells the ticket or if it's split between Irish Rail and Translink based on the mileage on either side of the border for the journey in question?
Does it depend on ticket type? I know that single and return tickets are sold by both Irish Rail and Translink but have to be bought from Irish Rail for journeys beginning in the Republic of Ireland and from Translink for journeys beginning in Northern Ireland. For weekly and monthly season tickets passengers should be able buy the ticket from either operator. Then there are some ticket types that are sold by one operator but not the other - for example, I know that annual season tickets are only available from Irish Rail and I think that 'carnet' multi-journey tickets are only sold by Translink.
