Welkom <-> JNB airport

Hello,

I will be traveling from Welkom to Joburg via bus (unless people have any better suggestion!!) in June and wonder what transportation is safe/inexpensive between the Park City Transit Centre (where the bus route terminates) and Joburg airport.

Are their shuttles or regional busses that are safe? Or are taxis my only recourse? I will be traveling alone with luggage.

Many thanks for any advice!

I would not recommend city buses, confusing to get to airport. You could try a private taxi, but beware the fluctuation in prices.

Check - the site - Gumtree - Johannesburg - Travel Services, or a lot of the smaller tour groups do shuttles, like - Jozi Experience.

Just be aware and careful when you arrive at Park Station.

You could try the Magic Bus shuttle service - I'm sure they would be able to get you from Park Station to the airport. Just make sure that the person who is collecting you actually collects you from inside the station so that you don't have to walk around on the perimeter looking lost or like a tourist. http://www.magicbus.co.za/

I'm not aware of a bus service between the train station and the airport but there could well be one.

Private taxi's charge by the meter so may work out more expensive.

You could also try this website - http://www.airportshuttle.co.za/ they seem to collect from the airport but imagine they could also collect from train station to airport.
