A valid Gold Card
is required to board a Gautrain
bus; these can be purchased at the stations and at selected retail outlets
. Your Gold Card will need to have
a minimum balance of R20 to board a Gautrain bus. Bus tickets cannot be purchased
on the buses.
Find your nearest bus stop by clicking here
or at your nearest station. Please note that
all of our bus stops can be identified by the following signs.
Flag your bus! The bus drivers do not necessarily stop at each bus stop, if there
are no passengers waiting there. 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.
Simply touch the Gold Card to the ticket reader on the fare-gate and wait for the
green light and beeping sound to indicate validation. Pass through the glass barrier,
board the train, sit back and relax! Upon leaving the train, touch the card to the
ticket reader at the fare-gate, wait for validation and pass through. Thank you
for using Gautrain!
Please 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.
Once you have arrived at the station, and if you are catching the train, you must
tag into the station within 90 minutes of having tagged into the bus to qualify
for the discounted fare.
