Public transport: Gautrain
Gautrainâ€™s airport service (Sandton to OR Tambo international Airport) has been improved as from the 11 August 2014 with earlier trains in the mornings and later trains in the evenings. This means that the first trains now leave Sandton to OR Tambo as early as 04:50 and 05:10. From Gautrainâ€™s OR Tambo International Airport Station the last trains are scheduled to 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,â€ 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 growthâ€ 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).
