Premium class transportation without any hassle. Felt safe in the clean location. Runs timely. Also used this train to Pretoria - got robbed just outside the station. Just pay attention when you get out of the station

The Gautrain is part of the very safe & clean underground rail system that takes you along the various communities. Our hotel, the Radisson Blu, a boutique hotel, was across the street from the entrance of the Gautrain-Sandton station, a very easy commute.

Took Gautrain from Sandton to Centurion, it's really convenient and always on time... and most of all really safe to travel. It took around 30 mins to arrive I think but don't really feel the time and don't have to worry about traffic at all!...More

I use the Gautrain daily, it's convenient but not cheap during peak hours. It's very safe and clean. I suggest you either go to the website or download the Gautrain app and it has the timetables and price calculator. Cons the first train starts from...More

Service closes early - long before most evening entertainment and certainly long before the last flights arrive at the airport.

Apologies for my very late response-I hope you received assistance? I am not accustomed to the Pretoria route,but doing a gautrain route programme search will give you time and bus stop guides to connect you.

The Gautrain via Sandton, Rosebank is the best option. To get to the Hyatt just go right out the Station. Head up the street on the opposite side of the station. It is about 200 to 300 Meters.
