I was a bit apprehensive when i was told that i would not be picked from OR Tambo international airport but rather that i should use the Gautrain and i would be picked from Sandton. All i can say is that it was a world class experience in 12min i was at the Sandton station compared to the drive from OR Tambo to Sandton. I will be using the Gautrain more often. The service runs on time as well

Last year, I took a train from ORT International airport in Johannesburg to Sandton with my son. It was quick to purchase the tickets, the seats were comfortable and it was a short, fun ride with a minor. The signage and announcements helped us to navigate the stations. I felt it was worth the price.

Ive been on the gautrain numerous times. Its clean and efficient. If you are in a rush make sure you pay attention to the timetable. No point in rushing to just end up sitting for ten minutes waiting for the deparure time.

I've been traveling on the Gautrain since it opened and I must say that it does Jhb proud. Haven't had any misfortunes of delays due to tech difficulties which I've heard about but never once have I been let down.

Always a pleasure and the process seems smooth and quick.

Taking a cab from OR Tambo to Sandton would have cost me at least R450. Thank goodness for the Gautrain because for just R125 i reached Sandton in less than 20min and enjoyed a safe and clean ride. Really impressed!
