“Gautrain convenience”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Have been using the Gautrain to drop groups of teenagers off so they can go to the cinemas. From Midrand to Sandton, know they are safe and easy collect them afterwards.

“Only way to travel”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

To be honest the security is a little insane. No gum or water allowed in the station and trains. don't even try to get away with it. But I respect what they are doing because it is clean as a whistle. only way to travel to and from the airport. Quick trip to Pretoria and Hatfield as well. no more traffic and dangerious roads! Much cheaper then taking a private taxi from the airport!

“Expensive but efficient”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

R100 per ticket but very efficient in getting from Joburg to Sandton or Pretoria. Extremely modern, clean, quiet, and comfortable. There are guards/officers on the train who won't let you eat or drink, so hide your food/water.

“hugely convenient!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

I use the train regularly for airport trips, a little bit pricey but hugely convenient. Clean and reasonably on time I'll keep using it!
