“World Class !”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Compares to the best in the world - nice and clean with an emphasis on safety. Best South Africa has to offer from public transport point of view.

“Impressive”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

My Gautrain experience was smooth and efficient. The wait at the airport was longer than I would have liked (outside of peak time, apparently). Will definitely use it again to get to Sandton.

“Clean, safe and efficient form of transport”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

The system reminded me of the efficient transport systems one finds in Europe. Trains arrived and departed on the scheduled time and the stations and trains itself are clean with no eating allowed. There are security guards on the platforms that will remind you of this if you're seen eating. A really good way to see a bit of the city.

“Pretoria to Sandton”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Easy to use, very clean and efficient. The exit signs at Sandton could be better. On our way back there was not enough cars as there was a Springbok rugby game at Loftus and the space was very cramped. Better planning would be advised.

“travel to town and airport”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

It was a safe and reliable form of transport. nothing bad to say about it. plenty of staff to help with enquiries and guide you...remember not to eat or drink when you're in the system though, as this may incur a fine
