The quickest way to get from Park Station to Hatfield and back in comfort and style. The Gautrain is immaculate. It is fast. And it is comfortable. Lets have an early expansion. There is also an airport link. Great if you fly from ORTambo.

I forgot my suitcase on the train and this man Michael Maluleke helped me to find it and arranged for the luggage to be brought to the station I was at when I reported it lost. Thanks Michael, excellent job.

It’s right there in the airport, it’s safe, it’s clean, it’s fast. What more could you ask for? Yes WiFi onboard. Hopefully that will be coming shortly.

I traveled with the Gautrain last Nov, and it was splendid trip between Hatfield and Rosebank the Zone. It is a guick commuter for rush hour traffic. The rates are a steep though. The trains not very crowded, neat and clean.
