Transportation

The Gautrain is an 80-kilometre mass rapid transit railway system in the Gauteng Province, to relieve the traffic in the Johannesburg–Pretoria traffic corridor and offers commuters a viable alternative to road transport in both cities.


The Gold Card

All Gautrain services are accessible through using a "smartcard" – the Gautrain Gold Card. Cash is not accepted.

First time users can access the station parking facilities without a Gold Card, but one would need to purchase one at the station to pay for either the train or the bus services. A Gold Card costs R12 and remains valid for 5 years and enables you to load a variety of journey products from Pay-As-You-Go to a 35-Day.

You can top your Gold Card up using cash, debit cards or credit cards. This can be done at all ticket offices and ticket vending machines at any Gautrain station.


Gautrain Bus Service

The bus routes operate every day from 5h30 until 20h30. To board a Gautrain bus, you must have a valid Gold Card with a minimum balance of R20 in your possession.

Touch the Gold Card to ticket the reader on the bus, wait for the green light and beeping sound to indicate validation.

If you use a bus and a train within one hour of one another, the bus fare is only R6. There is a R20 fare if you use a bus and don't also use a train within one hour.

*No Gautrain bus services on weekends or public holidays.

Detailed information on the Gautrain routes, stations, bus services and bus stops is available on the following links below.
