What I really appreciate is that it is clean, on time, quick and easy to use. I always use it for airport trips as the traffic is a nightmare. The staff are very helpful too.

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.

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!

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.
