“Clean and quick”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

What a pleasure to ride in clean public transport. Keep enforcing the rules. Stations are fully 'manned' so there is always someone to help.

“Great transport but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

The Gautrain is world class, efficient, on time and spotless. I have used it a number of time to the airport, Pretoria and to Park Station. I love it.

There are some serious downsides though. If your flight is delayed you may not get back and then its R 400 for a taxi. You will also not be able to get your car out of the parking lot. I have stopped using it to the Airport because of that.

The buses are not that efficient and don't go to some places such as Greenside.

“1st world service costs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Fast, efficient and clean. Just don't do anything to tick off the security gaurds. These guys have a mandate to be priggish and prickly (saw one tell another guy to throw away his gum)
