My introduction to the ultra modern Gautrain bus and metro service was a welcome and reassuring experience in a part of the world where personal security is a major consideration. As noted by other contributors, it is a safe, efficient, value priced, exceptionally clean and well run transportation system which certainly beats anything that we have in Canada. The airport connection is a major plus and well sign posted. Once you have your Gold Card, travel is intuitive. Arriving after dark at stations is still risky relative to onward travel unless pickup arrangements have been made in advance. Announcements on trains and at stations are in English as is the signage.

Time keeping is poor especially for the few amount of travelers and the waiting times as well bring back the adage there is no hurry in Africa.
