Gautrain train schedule
01 June 2019

Gautrain has implemented various enhancements to the train schedule to provide a more convenient and comfortable service to passengers.


In addition to enhancing the schedule, the high peak fare (red fare) has been suspended for a trial period and depending on capacity constraints, it may be re-introduced at a later stage. For now, the high peak fare will not apply.


Here are some of the schedule enhancements passengers can look forward to:


The afternoon peak period has been extended Northbound only (from Park station to Hatfield station), Monday to Friday. The afternoon peak now commences at 14h38 as opposed to 15h28. Whilst trains will be available every 10 minutes from 14h38, off-peak fares will apply during this extended peak period.


On the North - South line, trains travelling Southbound (from Hatfield station to Park station) will depart earlier on weekdays only.


The first train departure times are as follows:
Hatfield 05h05
Pretoria 05h12
Centurion 05h20
Midrand 05h29
Marlboro 05h35
Sandton 05h40
Rosebank 05h44


Gautrain has introduced additional 8-car trains during the morning and afternoon peak periods on the North-South line.


The first train departing from OR Tambo at 05h19 travelling towards Sandton now stops at Rhodesfield and Marlboro stations. As such, both Rhodesfield and Marlboro stations now have an earlier train departure on weekdays only.


The first train departure times are as follows:


Rhodesfield 05h22 | Marlboro 05h29


On weekends and public holidays, trains are now available every 20 minutes between OR Tambo and Sandton station as opposed to every 30 minutes.


Gautrain remains committed to providing a world-class service and will continuously monitor and evaluate our service so that we provide the most convenient and comfortable service without compromising safety and security.
