Tomorrow Gautrain will be part of the free Provincial public transport offerings for the memorial services to be held for the late former President Nelson Mandela. Although Gautrain will run a normal business day train service tomorrow, there will be less frequent buses on all routes and a free train service only to Park Station from 5h00 – 11h00, and from Park Station 14h00 - 20h30, for bona fide memorial goers only. OR Tambo International Airport excluded from this offering.
People planning on attending the memorial service will exit at the Gautrain Park Station - to catch further public transport service to the FNB stadium.
Above average usage is thus expected and frequent passengers are requested to keep this in mind when making travel arrangements. The system will operate normally from 11h00 - 15h00.
If you catch the Gautrain to or from OR Tambo Airport between 1 Dec 2013 and 15 Jan 2014 (both dates inclusive), we’ll automatically enter your Gold Card into a draw for a travel voucher worth R100,000! You can use the voucher to purchase any dream holiday of your choice. We’ll announce the winning Gold Card on Facebook and Twitter before the end of January 2014 so make sure you follow @TheGautrain!
This offer is valid at any Gautrain parking facility (subject to space availability). The offer is valid ONLY if you park and then complete any RETURN train journey between 1 Dec 2013 and 15 Jan 2014 (both dates inclusive). You MUST exit the parking on or before 15 January 2014 (using the same Gold Card that you used to catch the train) and within 1 hour of your return train trip, failing which standard parking rates will apply for your full parking period.
This offer is valid for all Gautrain bus trips from 1 Dec 2013 to 15 Jan 2014 even if you don’t also use the train. Use your Gold Card to tag on.
