Johannesburg Central Park Station opens for Gautrain
THE GAUTRAIN officially inaugurated full operations between Hatfield Station in Pretoria and Park Station in central Johannesburg on June 7th 2012. The Gautrain’s final leg will help passengers between central Johannesburg and Rosebank, who have been relying on a bus to transport them between the two stations.
A single pay-as-you-go train trip between the Hatfield and Park Stations will cost R52, while the analogous trip between Sandton and Park Stations will cost R22. Passengers using the train to Rosebank Station and then a Gautrain bus into the Johannesburg CBD, will now be able to start their bus journey from Park Station instead, to the same stops as before.
Other passengers with extra packages having their trips currently terminating at Rosebank Station, may use the same product to Park Station instead, but will be charged an additional R3 per trip, which will be automatically deducted from the “pay-as-you-go” value on their gold cards.
The opening of the Gautrain station in central Johannesburg came a month after the City of Johannesburg has opened four new Rea Vaya bus stations which will enable commuters to easily integrate with both Metrorail and the Gautrain station at Park Station. The Rea Vaya bus station at Park Station is strategically built at Rissik Street, not far away from the well-known Metrorail Johannesburg Park Station and the Gautrain station.
