Gautrain bus services have been re-opened on the following routes:
· Sandton to Gallo Manor (S2)
· Sandton to Rivonia (S3)
· Sandton to Randburg (S4)
· Sandton to Fourways (S5), and
· Rosebank to Johannesburg CBD (RbTemp).
For the time being buses are running between 06h00 and 18h00. Buses on the Sandton routes will operate at frequencies to meet every second train but the Rosebank/CBD service is operating at scheduled frequencies.
Additional bus routes and service frequencies will be reinstated incrementally as soon as replacement drivers, currently being employed and trained, become available. Customers will be kept fully informed of developments.
Many passengers have requested guidance on possible refund procedures in those instances where they have found it difficult to fully utilize their period product train trips due to the bus strike. Gautrain management is aware of these difficulties and is working on a plan which will seek to be fair and equitable for customers affected due to their reliance on the bus service. Details will be made public in due course.
The Gautrain sincerely thanks customers for their patience and support during this period. Please sms the word “ALERT” to 32693 for service information directly to your mobile.
