ELECTRONIC TICKETING FOR PASSENGER CONVENIENCE
The smart cards can be obtained at self-help ticket vending machines or a manned ticket office in each station in order to pay for train trips and/or bus trips. For convenience, smart cards can be uploaded with cash, debit cards or credit cards. The same preloaded card will then be used to pay for trips on the train and Gautrain buses or and for parking at stations.
When passing through the access gates, these smart cards are scanned electronically. Technology installed at the access gates does not require the physical swiping of smart cards which mean that passengers can quickly and smoothly move through the access gates.
For security purposes, only valid ticket holders will have access to station platforms, trains and buses.
In future it is hoped that Gautrain’s automated ticketing system will form part of an integrated ticketing system for all modes of public transport across Gauteng.
