SANDTON – Gautrain users need to take note of some of the changes to Gautrain's services following the start of the EcoMobility Festival in Sandton.

There will be controlled entrance to the Gautrain parking via West Street. Gautrain airport passengers who prefer to access the Gautrain at Sandton Station should consider taking a bus or taxi to Sandton Station, or alternatively they need to allow for extra time to make their way through the controlled access point on the corner of Rivonia and West streets to the station’s parking.

To assist Gautrain users during the festival, the following adjustments to Gautrain services have been made:

  •  Additional eight-car train trips to depart from Hatfield at 5.56am and 7.26am on weekdays
  •  The weekday afternoon peak period (north- and east-bound) has been extended and will commence from about 2.40pm (previously 3.30pm)
  •  Over weekends, the trains will operate at 20-minute service intervals from 9am to 6pm (changed from two trains to three trains per hour, per direction). This means that three, as opposed to two trains will operate each hour in each direction
  •  Additional express bus services over and above the current Gautrain bus services will be introduced to service certain park and ride sites.

At Montecasino, an additional 16 to 20 express bus service departures are planned during peak periods. Prepaid tickets for the Gautrain bus service are available inside Montecasino at the Sins outlet during the following times:

  •  Mondays – 9am to 10pm
  •  Tuesday to Thursday – 9am to 11pm
  •  Friday and Saturday – 9am to midnight
  •  Sunday – 10am to 10pm.

Normal Gautrain bus services at 20-minute intervals will run from Melrose Arch and in Sandton, the existing Gautrain bus routes will marginally be impacted to operate on the EcoMobility Festival public transport loop.

New users of the Gautrain park and ride facilities are requested to obtain a Gautrain ticket in advance before the start of the festival.
