The main underground section of the Gautrain, the section to Park Station, did not open with the rest. They are having problems with seepage in the tunnels. No opening date for this section has been published.

Hi Quisquose

There are safe taxi's located just outside the northern entrance/exit to Park Station. They all have standard charges, so much of a muchness.

One company I have dealt with that you can possibly pre-book is Elite Chauffeur Services (http://www.taxihire.co.za/). You can give them a try.

Others you can try are Rose Taxis (www.rosetaxis.com) or SACab (www.sacab.co.za), but there are many others.

Hello Quisquose. I was wondering how your experience was with transferring from Park Station. Which service did you use? Like you, I will also be arriving by train into the station, but I don't think the Gautrain train has linked to the station yet.

Thanks for any advice.

The train is not running between Park Station and Rosebank. There is however a shuttle bus between the stations which departs every 15 mins.

Best taxi service in Joburg is called Rose's taxis, it's a very well established collective of taxi-owners (rather than a business owned by one rich guy) and they are very reliable. You call and pre-book; or call on arrival (they are usually not more than 15 mins away) +27 11 403 9625. Ask for a car with a meter and specify that you want to use the meter (rather than negotiate the price)

Hi there!

I am from Sydney Australia and excited about visiting South Africa!

I need to catch the premierclasse train at Park Station to Cape Town from Rosebank 6th May. I need to be at Park Station about 1.30pm. Will there be a shuttle bus from Rosebank to Park Station at this time on a Sunday and where is the shuttle bus located in relation to Rosebank station. Thanking you in advance!
