The Gautrain is safe, efficient and clean. It is the best way to get to the airport. From Pretoria, Midrand or Sandton, this is the most convenient and fastest way to Oliver Tambo Airport, Johannesburg .

The cards are free and I believe each traveler will require their own card. You also can go to the teller and purchase tickets as needed.
