The gautrain has become my choice of transport for Johannesburg - coupled with a walk, uber or corporate transport - this has made Johannesburg & Pretoria accessible and a pleasant commute from or to the airport or around these two major metropoles

A reason to fly from OR Tambourine, just to experience the Gautrain. Fast, comfortable and really a pleasure. We live it!! We wish we could get the train all over Gauteng!

Had a pretty bad experience on my first time on the Gautrain. Your not aloud to even have a breath mint while you wait for the train. The security are very rude and unfriendly. I give it a massive thumbs down

I use the Gautrain regularly to travel to and from O.R.Tambo Airport. It is convenient and saves so much time not sitting in traffic on the roads.

With the usual traffic and delays not to mention tolls from the North West of Jhb I prefer getting dropped of at the Gautrain station in Sandton and catch the clean efficient and fast train to ORTambo International! Only suggestion is to make train journey prices clearly visible! I never know how much it costs.:(
