Great trip with husband and 6 year old son on the Gautrain. Bit busy with not enough seating on our trip but altogether a great experience! Very enjoyable. Clean and safe feeling at the terminal. Would recommend the experience

I ride on the train every week. Its a very safe train as well as very professional. The train is for all to use! I see children age 7 use the train with out a problem.

I love this service! They need to build more lines so that we can get all over the whole city. Safe and reasonably priced. I am aware that some people have experienced delays in the peak, but I am fortunate that I have never experienced that in 4 years.

Efficient - fifteen minutes from Sandton to O R Tambo Airport; effective - regular service all day - sadly not 24 hours yet; clean - no eating, drinking or littering tolerated; safe - security guards visible at all times; huge time saver - the roads to OR Tambo are busy and can be congested - Gautrain negates this risk

So often I have been tempted to take a taxi, or a get a lift, or take a hire car from OR Tambo,but with power cuts galore affecting traffic flows and tempers, Gautrain was the answer.!! Having used trains extensively in UK and Australia, rail travel does not carry the stigma that it obviously does in South Africa..!! BUT 20... More

Love that i dont have to worry about traffic getting to OR tambo. The train is dependable and predicable. The connecting buses from the train stations are equally great. Wonderful service, thank you GauTransport.
