Gautrain - for people on the move
The official Gautrain app - everything you need to know about the Gautrain.
Find your nearest Gautrain station and bus stops. View peak & off peak timetables to plan your day and calculate estimated trip-, parking- & bus fares.

The Gautrain system provides you with a safe, comfortable and reliable train service, a dedicated bus system, as well as drop-off and parking facilities at all stations (except at OR Tambo International Airport). These services are fully integrated and may be used separately or jointly by transferring from one to another. The services are all accessed by means of your Gold Card. Additional services include car rental facilities at Johannesburg Park Station, Sandton- and Pretoria Stations.

Due to the large possibility of different routings, the fare calculator gives only indicative prices and not always the exact amount. The indicative price shall not be binding and/or enforceable against the Gauteng Provincial Government (including the Gauteng Management Agency (Pty) Ltd) and/or Bombela Concession Company and/or Bombela Operating Company (Pty) Ltd. The timetables are only indicative and can change without prior notice.

Wrong Price Calculations Focus on getting the small things working first.Something as simple as calculating the price is incorrect. I read its stated that the prices my differ. When you count your Rand's and your dependent on the calculations. It then costs more when you use the train it doesn't help at all. You are then stuck at the check out point as you don't have enough funds what an embarrassment ... Otherwise it's OK..

It's 2015 there's no excuse for such a badly designed app The "push notifications" pop up in this ugly jarring box which disrupts whatever I was busy with. Have the notification appear in my notifications pane where they appear for EVERY other app. Secondly has no one in the app team heard of material design or hell even 'flat design'. Get your act together guys, we expect better from you.

Christiaan Mostert

Great development progress Well done guys! Smaller things to improve like bus service timings and GPS positioning of busses and even trains, but generally good app. Reliable.

Juan Jansen van Rensburg

Horrible app stuck in the 90's Reminds me of Windows ME. No NFC or mobile payment or recharge of cards. Basically just duplicates the info on the website. Bus tracker inaccurate, and thus useless. The shitty website is better.

Louis Coetzer

Hate unwanted notifications I MUST be able to remove or disable notifications. Uninstalling for now. Hope you fix it by the next time i need it. I will change my rating then.

Robert Jordaan

Gautrain app Great app really useful for planning routes and times just two problems, first you cannot disable alerts or customise the alert settings and it eats a lot of 3G data but that has gone down significantly over time

Mark Cosijn

Bus Tracker Eats Data Using the bus tracker once a day for 5 days and just long enough to see where bus, is results in 270Mb. Please optimise this feature

Henk Coetzee

At least put the option in to disable the notifications. I hardly use Gautrain, and these are very disruptive. Total bs. That's me, I'm uninstalling this app. On previous similar Posts, AfriGIS replies that one needs to disable notifications in the App Manager. I've done this, but still get the notifications... Delve deep into phone settings for the next hour? Or uninstall?

Byron Stander

Really bad app. Especially the buss tracker. It says there's a bus a mile away on a quiet road and you wait 30 minutes.

Vivien Yoka

Bus schedule It helps me checking the time of the next train. But it would be better if we could have the bus time too, live!

jeremiah mtoka

Not very impressed, not at all Guys, your gps and bus Tracking as well as the so called push notifications are absolutely rubbish. Not accurate at all. Fix it or just do away with the damn app. Not impressed at all. Timing is off and the whole thing is slow

Tertius Geldenhuys

100% on schedule The app states clearly that it depicts train arrival/departures. It's right on time, as always.

Waheed Amodjee

What do the green and red dots mean on the bus tracker What do the green and red dots mean in the bus routes why is there no option telling you what these things mean in the app

Petrus Daffue

It's okay The map loading on the bus tracker could be improved

Werner Scheffer

Good Needs some material design and still no nfc balance check and no way to disable push notifications

Moramang Matsieng

Still so so Poor bus schedule and location prevents me from giving this app a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ rate; work on it

Laura Wojtowitz

Gautrain app The times are ALWAYS wrong for the trains leaving from Pretoria station going southbound

Makanya Stephinah Radali

Its okay, but if it gives bus time too will be better, and its very hard to locate buses cause their sometimes very late. And if we have recharge machines in the bus stops maybe it will help those that need to load instead of climbing in the bus and u don't have credit. Not cash machine but card debit.

Arie Roos

Uses a LOT of data In the first week, this app used 90 MB of my mobile data.

Vlad Lakce

Ok, limited functionality

Tirelo Mabetoa

The bus tracker barely works and the alerts are broken

Themba Nkosi

It's just happiness all the way. I'm loving it...

max 1stground

Good I love how the app work its 90% perfect the other 10% goes to bus times improvement

Joanet Webb

More accurate times will be very helpful.

Jac Steenekamp

Bus tracker is useless I get a key is invalid error

Abdul Kadir

alerts disappear why alerts disappear instantly?? i want to read it again but then they are removed so we cant check again any dealys ..

Ralph Kopplinger

A lot of room for improvement. Timetable is very good. Bus Tracker: Map interface is slow and crap. Would be much better to stay zoomed in where you left off last before exiting. Or at least zoom in to your current / nearest bus stop, or a quick button to zoom to zoom to closest bus-stop. Alerts: Why no option to notifications off?! I don't need big notifications taking over my screen with every single issue. Just keep them in the alert list. Why do alerts disappear on alert list? Keep the last 10 and indicate when resolved.

Nyeleti Furumele

Just ok I wish the app would give us the option to look up the bus route rather than having yo zoom in and out to locate your bus route. Plus at times the notifications are delayed

Rohan Barnard

Performs it's task, but... This app probably has the worst design possible. It feels as if it was developed for Android 2.2 and follows none of Google's design principles. It gives you the information you need but there are better alternatives to this app.

Pieter Mulder

Below average My latest frustration is the terrible way of using notifications. Not only do you get a normal notification when something happens on Gautrain but you also get a dialog. It's not Android standard and it is really annoying.

Talib Khan

Works but hate the alerts must be option to switch them off . For those who don't use gautrain. All the time .

Isabel Dlamini

Am very happy with the train time table. Thank u! However, we need the bus time table too. Its very necessary to know the times. Most people jump from the bus into the train & out into the next bus.

Heinrich Ludike

If only The app works well enough, if only the trains ran like the supposed clockwork.

Tsundzuka Mlati

Sony xperia What's the point of updating the timetable but not sorting out the bugs. Fair calculator not functioning. App was great once upon a time, no longer the case :-( :-( :-(

Dustin Lee Martin

Great The app works exactly as described and keeps me well informed with regards to train operations. PS. A visual refresh/update would be appreciated too.

Mahomed Khalid Abdool Khader

To be expected Never syncs for times, can not provide timely prices or calculations, no point to the app really

James Lishman

Quick solution to get places and optimize time Bus tracker (live) saved me an hour getting from JHB cbd to Hatfield - awesome tool

A Google User

Excellent! Nice app. Easy to use and quite accurate. Thanx!

Jeremy Burns

Bus tracker poor. Tracker doesn't update quickly, if at all. I advise you don't wait at home confidently using this as a guide. The map is also very slow. There had to be a better way...

Andrew Parsons

Better than nothing It's useful to have the timetable but the fare information doesn't work. It shouldn't be that difficult!

David Outthere

Timetable incorrect This app does not reflect the gautrain's new timetable which makes it totally useless. It used to be a very helpful app.

André Swart

Waste of time. Inaccurate departure times. Slow to update bus positions. No "refresh" button.

Suleiman Shaik

Good app Good app. Gives us d basic info we need. Jow about building a notification function : passenger sets an alarm to notify them of their desired train time ? Just a thought...

vanessa koete

Not enough info, you still have to go online I'm just irritable right now this app is almost a waste.

Thapelo Motlogeloa

UI is terrible Terrible looking app!

Alexander Puntigam

Generally good. But the bus tracker needs improvement. In Pretoria, there are 2 routes (Arcadia and another one) that are both red, and they touch at the intersection of Hamilton and Francis Baard. It's very difficult to see that they're actually different routes, and this morning it resulted in an hour delay and a 4km walk for me. The tracker interface is also very slow. But apart from that, times and fares etc are all good! Well done.

Steyn Geldenhuys

Grabs hold of GPS, horribly irritating notifications Once the bus tracker is used with the locate me option, the app grabs hold of the GPS and just doesn't let go. Even when the app is in the background, it keeps the GPS working hard. This drains my battery quite a bit. My biggest gripe with this app is the irritating notifications, it doesn't use the normal Android notification tray to display incoming notifications, instead the app uses its own notifications which just overlays over which ever app you have open. Very bad style.

Gwynn Prickett

Seems to have lost some functionality since it was updated? Like remembering the last station you'd entered. Also takes you to the current day's timetable even if you've selected another day.

Richard Corbishley

I have one problem... The app works, I'll give it that. But please, please, work on the looks. I don't go on the Gautrain frequently, but when I do, I have to check the timetable. And the looks of the app just put me off completely. For a device running Android 5.1 Lollipop, to have an app that looks like it's from Gingerbread or Froyo is just sad. Please update the design to something that's more in line with the design principles of 2015/2016.

Ncibane Stuurman

Balance Check I'm not a frequent user the Gautrain.. I use in Three four times a month. It would be really convenient if I could check my Balance on this app. It would allow me to plan my times

Lee Anny

Require an update The train times and number of trains (4 or 8 car trains) on the app does not correlate to the actual info displayed at the station. The app displays that at a certain time it is an 8-car train but when I get to the station it is a 4-car train which is irritating especially during peak hours on the north-south line.

Sanele Dlamini

I think it's a great app, but it could use one more feature. How about you add a feature allowing to check our card's credit? I shouldn't have to go into the station to find out hoe much I have left.

Madimetja Mahlanya

Its good If you could also include a option to check the funds available, for not so frequent users. And an option to top up online

Siveshen Chetty

Gautrain Card Reader Great Application but if Gautrain App developer's could add a NFC tag feature to read balances on our mobile phones could boost the App to a 5 Star rating...When I place the card under my phone it says NFC not supported...Please enable a feature like this.

John-Phillip Saayman

Works but looks ugly This app looks like a gingerbread app from 2011. It time to get with a streamlined material design look. If you don't know what that means then please visit Google's app design website

Caroline Mchunu

Gautrain Not bad. Timing is accurate. More information on buses would be nice. Which bus goes where. And please improve the bus tracker function. Its very slow.

Etienne de Villiers

Whats the use Useless app. Doesnt have any valid info, golden tickets does not get registered so in the case of a lost ticket bye bye moola. Tickets can only be checked at stations (seen people stuck at bus stations numorous times. NOT USER FRIENDLY

Duncan Mthontiso

Perfect for the train service I don't know what I would do without this app.

sizwe mabanga

Needs tlc Bus tracker just suddenly stopped working. Map appears bus markers don't. But otherwise does the job.

Fikile Mokoena

The app needs updating If it isn't the train times being incorrect on the app it's the trains leaving a minute earlier than what they should according to the schedule you find at the Gautrain station. I've seen this happen a few times actually. But it's not all doom and gloom, atleast 80% of the time one is actually able to catch the right train. Just update the time table from time to time that's all and have REAL people actually test it for you. You might just have less complaints and more compliments

Karabo Mpedi

Balance check feature It would be really helpful if a balance check option was installed. It's annoying to always check my balance at the station.

Brad Tribe

The train times on the app and at the station often don't coincide, so you sit waiting for a train or miss the train you were trying to catch.

A Google User

Bad app Departure times are wrong so annoying. What's the point of the app if u don't have correct departure time? I mean honestly!

Clifford Warburton

No major innovation in years

Matumelo Mathibela

Outdated The application has NOT been updated with the new train times, since they changed to ten minutes intervals during peak times. Frustrating!!!

Barend van Jaarsveld

Not up to date with current affairs. Yesterday a bus crashed into the Gautrain. I thought that it would classify as an Alert?? A notification of expected delays or resuming sevices is what I would expect from the app. It is really not good in my opinion.

Hercu Pienaar

Bus tracker not functioning. Rather then give bus timetable as an alternative.

Rupert Kuypers

App to have! When using the Gautrain, this is the App to have!

Merc Bird

Sucks - How 'bout some notifications, bus schedules, settings....

Keren Crosson

Times The app says a certain time but the train always gets here before time and leaves the before time.

Bongani Andy Mabaso

This app looks terrible. Unbelievable from Gautrain no less.

ian nettleton

Bus tracking If this is to be believed none of the buses are working

Joe Bloggs

Font too small On the alert tab, the font is too tiny for my old eyes to read with a magnifying glass. The screen does not enlarge like it does in a browser. What a stupid design.

Shaun Struwig

Sad Sadly not the greatest app.

Carlene January

Schedule issues The schedule is incorrect

Gerrie Lindeque

Pathetic app. I deleted it.

Riccardo Moretti

Bus tracker not accurate at all

Archie Makuwa

I think for someone who has been using the Gautrain for a while, you will find yourself with several cards. It is always difficult determining how much is on each card. Adding the ability to check the balance on the card from our devices will give the app a 5/5 rating. And sometimes you just want to give your card to your partner and it's always as if you are clowning when you say you are not sure which card they should take. MyCiti already has that feature. Please look at adding the feature.

Justin Bekker

Where's the improvement?? The Gautrain app was great when it came out, but why hasn't it been improved upon at all? It just plain sucks by today's standards. Why not update it to be in line with Google's Design Principles? Then there's the fact that both the Gautrain cards and most of our phones have NFC chips in them. Why not add a simple section to the app which reads the balance off the card? And allows me top up the card from my phone? Or better yet, allow us to use our phones instead of cards through an e-wallet system?

Karl Fischer

Ads in the official app Very Classy

Igna Badenhorst

The bus tracker on app needs serious attention. Does not work well on android phone and also constantly have blank spots, thus cannot really use beneficially

Bobby Siphiwo Khama

Can be better Can the app please use NFC capabilities and allow users to scan their account balances on their phones. Having to stand in a line to get your account balance is unnecessary.

Anita Gopal

No alerts No alerts about trains being delayed due to power problems. Alerts not coming through.

Makhabane Christopher Mipi

Works Holidays timetable doesn't load automatically, on holidays I got the week day's timetable

milisa kentane

Getting train times wrong This app told me that the train was arriving at 10h26 and the next one at 10h46. The train arrived at 10h38.

Francois du Plessis

It's functional, but the often inaccurate bus tracker needs work for a better rating.

prince Dube

The bus tracker is not really up to standard

Daveshen Naidoo

Xperia M2 Informative application. Although when searching on the Bus Tracker, the app says "Key is Not Valid . Then you need to restart the application. Your Bus Tracker needs serious attention.

Steyn Geldenhuys

I hate this app. I kill it as quick as I can, when I actually do use it. THEY PROMISED A NEW APP MONTHS AGO, BUT IT IS STILL THE SAME OLD PIECE OF CRAP. It drains battery by grabbing the GPS and not letting go. It has horrible notifications. The bus tracker is buggy as hell. And generally it is just a butt ugly app.

Karabo Diseko

It's ok. It needs some sauce though. It's pretty decent app that does what it's supposed to. However, it could look better with a material interface & for convenience, phones compatible with NFC, could have a feature that lets you check the balance of credit on your Gold Card.

Enke-Mari Marx

On a weekend, I wanted to consult the time table for a weekday. Impossible. I select Monday and select timetable and it gives me the current timetable indicating when the next train is due to leave the selected station. Reply from AfriGIS (Pty) Ltd on 16 May 2016 Good day Enke-Mari, Kindly keep an eye out for the brand new Official Gautrain App coming soon. Me: Thanks, but you've been saying that as a reply to users' comments since 2014.

solleti kumar

not real time information just popping up da chart info ...whats the point of reusing the app

Busisiwe Ngwenya

App generally good. But it would be even greater if we could link it with our card so one can keep track of their balance and also load credits.

Leon Schultz

Fee calculator not working All fees are R1

Christo Greyling Thompson

Ish When is the new app coming?

Mikhail Kuschke

Train times are not correct Seriously? Can you not accomplish a task as simple as having the correct train times? Surely that's the sole purpose of the app? Small differences are understandable (I did read the disclaimer) but a 10 minute difference is pathetic

Merilyn Kate Vermaak

Timing. The actual train times don't match up with the app times. This is a very aggravating problem for a passenger trying to plan a trip between Pretoria and Sandton. The trains are also exceptionally crowded.

Bernard Saayman

Bad time table. For visually impaired do not ask staff for arrival and departure time.

Laurie Edgar Rother

Good app. Consider NFC. Coming from Cape Town, I always used the MyCiti bus service. Something to consider would be the NFC feature so that I can check my balance, manage my card(s), and maybe even top-up my account through my device. Otherwise, great app.

Nadim M

Sucks Map is unreadable. Bad advert for afrigis. Still using tile based maps. And doesn't seem to cache. Rather load the images from the pdfs and have a separate bus ETA. User interface is clunky. Whatever happened to GT buddy?

Mahesh Parshotum

Bus tracker doesn't work Although I zoomed into the location I wanted to monitor it didn't show the bus movement.

Leigh Brand

GOOD Just upgrade to Android Marshmallow, don't have the ability to see the closest bus stop in Bus Tracker anymore...

Gustave Ilunga

Suggestion It would be nice if you work on adding an option allowing the users to check their Gautrain Gold Card balance straight from the app.
