Gautrain spokesperson Kesagee Nayager said the trains would be running a reduced service which would start at 5.45am and that there would be additional security at the stations.
“The reduced service will consist of a peak period train service between 05h45 - 9h00 and 16h00 – 19h00 between Centurion and Sandton every 12 minutes‚ and between Sandton and Park stations every 20 minutes. No train service will be available during the off-peak period and only Centurion‚ Sandton and Park station will be open. All trains will be 8-car trains and operate in both directions (North and South bound).
“Buses will service only Centurion‚ Sandton and Park stations for the above peak periods and follow the usual bus routes‚” said Nayager.
To accommodate airport and Rhodesfield passengers‚ Gautrain will operate a bus service between Sandton and Rhodesfield stations and a bus or midi-bus service between Rhodesfield and OR Tambo stations. This service will operate from 5.45am to 7pm. A fixed fare of R21 per bus trip will apply for this service‚ Nayager said.
Ticket offices at all stations will be closed and passengers are encouraged to use the ticket vending machines or to load value on the Gautrain website or App.
