    You don't have to sit in traffic anymore!The train is so convenient, always on time and easy to us. The only problem is that is has become a bit pricey lately

    The last thing you want when you get off your plane is to worry about transport. The Gautrain is the perfect answer. It is clearly marked in the airport and you do not have to hassle about finding somebody to fetch you or go through the process of hiring a car only to get stuck in traffic and be late for where you are going. The Gautrain is efficient and professional and the service is really great

    We just got back from a 2 week holiday to Thailand and we used the Gautrain to get to the airport. It's insanely quick - in the blink of an eye you're there - and they are very accurate and efficient with providing the times for departure and show you where you need to be standing etc. The airport Gautrain is literally right by the departures area so we didn't have to walk far and everything was well marked when we arrived and when we left. I'd definitely do that again.

    Very convenient service - Ques at counters sometimes very long. Fees to travel to the airport are substantially higher than any other trips.

    I try to visit my daughter in JHB as often as I can and when I get to the airport I can catch the gautrain to her nearest station and then she does not have to worry about driving in traffic and finding parking, which is a daunting task for her with her eye problems. The station is easily accessible as there are signs throughout the airport. Trains are on time and if you miss the first one there is one very close behind. A perfect way to commute.

    When in Joburg I love the ease of the gautrain, you get off your plane, get your luggage and make your way to the station which is clearly marked throughout the airport and you are guaranteed that the train will be on time. It is a fast efficient and very easy way to get around, pity it does not have more stops but the stops it does have is well thought out. This is a brilliant idea for a busy city with gridlocked traffic most of the day.

    The costs to use this service, albeit world class, does not really justify paying +- R170 for a quick trip from the airport. What you are paying for is convenience which in this day and time is worth its weight in gold.
    Quick an efficient and really a pleasure to ride on. Making Africa proud

    Thank God and the visionaries for this service. I recently landed from an international flight and was home in within an hour from landing. The prices have increased a fair amount and is a bit expensive but still worth it.

    I love Gautrain because it's fast and I don't have to drive to the airport and Pretoria. The only downside is the buses don't actually service a lot of areas where people will actually value their service. Hint, Hint (Northcliff and Cresta Mall). It will be nice to have a bus in those areas. Overall, love the safe and fast transportation system.

    A great idea to take SA transport up a notch. It's been efficient every time I have taken it. Hopefully they are on their way to running 24-hours a day!

    Having used the Gautrain some months ago to travel from Rosebank to OR Tambo, the whole process was great, and world class. Bit sad though that the service is a complete 'carbon copy' of the "Heathrow Express" new when I was last in London about the turn of the century - down to exact coach design / configuration, announcer accent , but (sadly) the iconic 'mind the gap' was missing !!! Again, surely we have (we do) have the talent, and skills, and ability to have done far far more of this project in true original - and more cost effectively - South African style (and probably better as well !) . That nagging sense remains ... was this the best transport 'bang for buck' choice we could have made ....?

    Always on time, efficient, professional and great service. Who would want to drive a car around JHB when you can sit in luxury on the Gautrain? Perfect for short trips to JHB and so well marked you will never miss your train.
