Extended hours for Gautrain's airport service

First train leaves Sandton for OR Tambo at 04:50 and 05:10.
Last train from Gautrain’s OR Tambo International Airport Station leave at 20:46 and 21:04.

Gautrain CEO, Jack van der Merwe, pointed out that these early and late train services do not stop at stations between the airport and Sandton Station. "This means that if passengers want to make use of the early or late service, they have to use Sandton Station as their departure point and not any other station on the Gautrain route,” explained van der Merwe.

The Sandton and OR Tambo Stations will open and close 15 minutes before the first and last trains each day. He said that the Gautrain airport service continues to exhibit "positive growth” since it started operations on 8 June 2010.

Currently, this service carries an average of 5 500 passengers per day. In May this year, it was awarded the Global AirRail Alliance Award for Service Excellence in Oslo (Norway). -
