It doesn't feel safe anymore. The trains and rail system looks worn and neglected, not to mention the sideways shaking and groaning noises.

This was before Covid but I have only now gotten my life back in order enough to say what a convenient, top notch experience I had on Gautrain traveling between Pretoria and Johannesburg International Airport and back on return. On time, convenient, easy, safe, and the step-over inside the airport worked perfectly. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that the price is HIGHER than I paid for that kind of service overseas, even despite the exchange rate. In fact, in Britain the hotels were more affordable, the food was cheaper, the car rental was less than half what it is in Johannesburg. But to at least receive top notch service from Gautrain was inspiring and worth it, much better than driving and parking oneself at the airport.

Easy way to get around Johannesburg. Fast travel and clean seating.
Was recommended to us by a friend from the area and would recommend it to other travelers too.

overall the Gautrain system is good but the only problem i have is that when i come out of school i wait at the bus stop not knowing when the next bus will come out. the times aren't fixed sometimes they arrive at 15:00 sometimes 15:10 or even 15:30. today i waited almost 2 hours just to get a bus. i wish the times where fixed and that would make my life way easier

So I took the g-train from Sandton to Hatfield. During the trip my car keys must have fallen out of my jacket. Once I realized, the staff made it a priority to find and return them to me. Well done to the team at Hatfield and Sandton!

The only way to travel to and from OR Tambo airport. Secure, fast and efficient. Guaranteed arrival at the right time and avoids the freeway congestion.
