GAUTRAIN BUS STOPS

All Gautrain bus stops have the bus stop sign, shown on the left.

BUYING A TICKET - YOUR GAUTRAIN GOLD CARD
A valid Gold Card is required to board a Gautrain bus.

These can be purchased at all stations and at selected retail outlets (click here to see list at bottom of page)

COST
If you use a bus and a train within one hour of one another, your bus fare is R6-00
If you use a bus and DON'T use a train within one hour, your bus fare is R20-00

Buses DO NOT run on weekends and Public Holidays

BOARDING A GAUTRAIN BUS
Flag your bus!

The bus drivers do not necessarily stop at each bus stop!

When your bus is travelling towards you, you will need to flag it down if you would like it to stop.

You can do this by raising your arm when the bus approaches.

Please note that failure to do this will result in the bus continuing along its route.

TAGGING IN
When entering the bus, touch the ticket reader with your Gold Card and wait for the green light and beeping sound to indicate validation.

LEAVING THE BUS
Press the stop button on the bus as you near your desired stop so that the bus driver can stop to let you off.

You do not need to tag-out when exiting a bus.

If alighting at a station, and intend catching a train, you must tag into the station within 90 minutes of having tagged into the bus to qualify for the discounted fare.
