The Gautrain Rapid Rail Link was the first rapid rail network in Africa. The rail connection comprises two links, one between Tshwane and Johannesburg and the other between OR Tambo International Airport and Sandton. The system offers a fast, convenient, safe and efficient public transport service. It takes 15 minutes to travel from Sandton to OR Tambo International Airport on the Gautrain and 35 minutes from Pretoria in Tshwane to Park Station in Johannesburg. As from the 11 August 2014, the Gautrain’s airport service (Sandton to OR Tambo International Airport) was improved with earlier trains in the mornings and later trains in the evenings.
