I love riding the Gautrain. It's clean and very quick. Just to pricey from OR Thambo. Can't wait for the new rails to realize.

Once you tried this going to the airport you will never take a taxi or drive again. Its a highend train that runs on the clock and you even have guards protecting you

Anyone living in South Africa should take a ride on the Gautrain at least once. It's on par with most overseas public transport operations. It is a good way to travel from Johannesburg to Pretoria for a day out and the link between Sandton and OR Tambo Airport is very convenient.

As a Johannesburg resident I'm very proud of 'our' Gautrain. I've travelled a fair bit internationally and the Gautrain compares very well to similar services abroad, in fact, in quite a few instances the Gautrain is the more superior product. It is very quick and convenient, super clean and in great condition. The security personnel are strict so don't even think about climing on board chewing gum etc. It is rather pricey and the money machines are perhaps not the most userfriendly but there is no doubt that this service is convenient and one that I can recommend.
