If you want to move thru Joburg while being aware of the time you need, use Gautrain, no traffic jam, no risk, clean and safe. Even better than the tube in London or metro in Paris

I was taking the train from the airport to centurion station, with luggage. I couldn't get into the train, that full it was. Never will I take the... More

Clean and on time, no stress connection from the airport to Sandton, why worry about jam packed highways and e-toll! A great way to connect the world with Gauteng,

The signboards in the stations: Good information available, good signage inside the station. Good maps too. Buying tickets is simple as well but sometimes there is a queue. Generally very safe as many guards walk around.

Clean, comfortable and quick. Price is too high for what you get. If this would be more affordable, more people would use it. Cost for a return trip to the airport is way to high. If two or more are travelling, might be more worth while to get a Uber
