For locals, business travellers and tourists alike, Gautrain is about getting you there

Gautrain is so much more than just a train. It’s for people who yearn for freedom of movement and upward mobility… People who demand available, fast, reliable and punctual service… People who are time conscious. Gautrain is about the people that it moves every day – taking the banker from Park Station to Sandton or the tourist eager to explore and experience Gauteng. Since its inception, this system has changed and shaped people’s lifestyle, be it working or playing in Gauteng. Easily hopping on and off at stations for either leisure or work is becoming the norm – stress free.

Always on the Move

It’s also about the convenience of travelling from OR Tambo International Airport to Sandton’s business hub in under 15 minutes, while the Gautrain’s punctuality reduces the chances of missing flights. There’s a train every 10 minutes during peak times, every 20 minutes during off-peak hours, and every 30 minutes on the weekend.

In an effort to continue offering a safe, convenient and efficient service to passengers, earlier and later trains were introduced from OR Tambo International Airport to Sandton in mid-August 2014 and again in February 2015.

Located near to various points of interest, Gautrain brings people not only to their places of work, but also closer to various facilities such as hospitals, educational institutions, shopping centres, and entertainment and sports venues. The rapid rail link between Johannesburg and Tshwane offers easy access and appropriate linkages to various attractions and destinations along the route. These include the following:

  • Historical landmarks
  • Shopping malls
  • Sporting venues
  • Events and expo centres
  • Tertiary institutions
  • Monuments
  • Zoological parks

A cash-free ticketing system and the use of reloadable smart cards – the Gold Card – makes travelling on the Gautrain quick and convenient.

Always on the Move2

Passengers can buy their Gold Cards at any Gautrain station in addition to any approved service outlets.

Getting to your destination has never been easier or faster. Buses and shuttles are available to transport passengers during weekdays to and from all stations (with the exception of OR Tambo International Airport station). So what are you waiting for? Travel with Gautrain today. After all, it’s designed with people on the move in mind.
