The Gautrain is a golden train that has brought together great ideas of people from all corners of Gauteng, South Africa and the world. The Gautrain was a dream that was brought into reality by courageous, optimistic, individuals with young minds who were committed to making a positive contribution to society.  Their efforts and commitment resulted in the creation of a public transport system that has changed the face of Johannesburg, Tshwane and Ekurhuleni forever. The Gautrain is a beautiful train with freshness, vigor and most importantly brings out youthfulness in everyone who comes into contact with it because of its speed. 

Franz Kafka said “Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.” This is true to Gautrain as it continues to unlock the ambition of Gauteng residents and their upwardly mobile aspirations like a young person who is driven, is hungry for success for their future and anxious to get ahead. This phenomenon is not only applicable to youth but to every individual, who loves life and getting ahead.  The Gautrain provides these individuals with an opportunity to build future relationships with others, provides the freedom for easy mobility and is a symbol of pride and an everyday reminder that everything is possible.


Gautrain Stations are stylish, clean, safe and meeting points for those who want to get ahead. They have an identity with an attraction to tourists. Which brings an opportunity for networks and relationship building for those who use the Gautrain. Like the train, they provide speed and fast and efficient service to further provide upward movement.

The Gautrain is a beautiful train with freshness, vigor and most importantly brings out youthfulness in everyone who comes into contact with it because of its speed.

“The story of Gautrain is not about a train. It’s about how far we’ve come. The faces we meet, the places we see, and our everyday life’s journey. It’s a story of a new face and pace of Gauteng’s public transport. We’ve come a long way and still, we’re on the move… faster than ever’. This message is a reminder to many people with young mindsets who are on their journeys to success for the future, or those who are striving every day to make their dream a success. The commitment and optimism have recently resulted in the proposed Gauteng Rapid Rail Extension Network which will connect more youthful souls to the Gautrain story in the future.
