Only in Africa would riding on a train be an attraction. Johannesburg lacks public transport and the local "Taxi Service" is a laugh a minute. Really overpriced for locals.

This train is first world stuff. Beautiful, clean and neat, fast. Well worth a try!! When I was there it wasn't crowded at all, which made it even better.

Visiting friends and family this weekend in Pretoria and you live in Fourways? No problem - Take the shuttle from Monte Casino to the Sandton station, hop on the train, enjoy the visit - hop back on the train to Sandton, stop for a quick drink at Nelson Mandela Square - jump on the shuttle back to Monte - stop for a bite to eat at Monte - go home.
How much easier does it get?

Quick and convenient. Make allowance for time to board and waiting time between trains to avoid missing your flight

Great train from Tambo to Sandton -about £7 and every 15 mins. Very fast, new and comfortable.
However, sundays every 30-45 mins into park ( joburg central) and the airport, so get your timing right!
Buy a gold card at the machines and load it up ( card costs 60p)
Keep it and load it up PAYG whenever you need to travel.
Bear in mind this is the ONLY train in Joburg worth/ safe to go on.

Thank nachooooo
