In years gone by having battled the Joburg traffic, the Gautrain is an absolute pleasure. Easy to get ticket, station wait is very acceptable, coaches clean and trip is quick.

It is a quick and efficient way to get from the airport to Sandton/Rosebank or to Pretoria and back avoiding traffic. The bus service is also good and both have helpful staff and are very clean

Park your car at Sandton. Take the Gautrain to OR Tambo International Airport. Miss all the traffic. Great way to make sure you are on time for your flight.

Travelled from airport to Sandton, the price was less than 200R and it was suprisingly safe. If you have booked at Sandton a hotel perhaps your hotel can arrange for a pick up service at the Sandton station.

The quickest way to get from Park Station to Hatfield and back in comfort and style. The Gautrain is immaculate. It is fast. And it is comfortable. Lets have an early expansion. There is also an airport link. Great if you fly from ORTambo.

Easy to use for a single or couple, straight from the airport to Sandton, Centurion or Pretoria, efficient to use. when 3 or more I would recommend a cab as the price benefit doesn't really make sense as you still need to get a cab...More

I am not sure but the run every 20/30 minutes, remember that you have to change trains at Marlboro to get to OT airport. the fare is reasonable,
