“Convenience”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

No chewing or spitting allowed. Clean, a little pricey for a third world country, but first world standards, except when the lights go out or the cables get stolen.

Fun to ride, but I am glad I do not have to use it on rush hours. Parking is not as good as could be desired. I found that disabled people also battle with the train and our particular cases did not seem to excite any official attention for help.

“Excellent Fast And Clean”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

I take the train so often to the airport or to Pretoria why sit in that awful traffic? It is so safe and immaculately clean.

“AN EXCELLENT CONVENIENCE”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Landed ORTambo airport on the afternoon flight and was a bit concerned about traffic jams.Was booked at a hotel in Sandton and thought of going by the Gautrain after recommendations.Great convenience as a taxi takes 1 hour compared to the Gautrain taking around 15 minutes to Sandton.Would definately prefer Gautrain to car in travelling to and from Sandton.
