The Gautrain is synonymous with speed and for its commuters, this is an important characteristic as they are always on the move, faster than ever.  These are people who want to get ahead and strive to work hard every day. Their values are pride, freedom and relationships.  They look for opportunities everywhere and believe in building strong meaningful relationships in business and most importantly in their private lives.  Staying connected is important to them, not only geographically but they want to stay connected with other people and places.  

Gautrain offers them this opportunity.

Gautrain saves time and affords choice.  The choice to the convenience and connect with interesting places, people and businesses along its route. The longest distance on the Gautrain System is between Johannesburg and Tshwane and is approximately 42 minutes travelling time, a trip that can take up to 2 hours by car.  There are trains every 10 minutes during peak times and 20 minutes during off-peak. During weekends and public holidays, there are trains every 30 minutes. 

The Gautrain is not only a contributor to economic growth for Gauteng but the backbone for an integrated public transport service that is quick, safe and reliable for people on the move!

There are many places of interests and attractions along the Gautrain route, some of which have rich history such as the Constitution Hill, Freedom Park and the Voortrekker Monument. There are also retail, academic institutions, businesses and hotels.

Time is of the essence for Gautrain’s people on the move, even though they are from different backgrounds, time-saving is the one thing they have in common.  They value their time and want to do more every day.  Through its mobile application, Gautrain has ensured that commuters are able to plan their trips, work out their fare and check the timetable before arriving at the System and this has a time benefit.  Gautrain is fully integrated with its bus feeder system and parking.  It is also built in such a way that it connects with other public transport modes.
