Gautrain has introduced a new dedicated student travel pass. As from the 1 March 2021, students
travelling on Gautrain will be afforded a 25% saving on their Gautrain trips. This means all full-time
students, who are under 25 years of age and are registered with an accredited institution of higher
learning in Gauteng, qualify for a 25% saving between any two Gautrain stations of their choice. The
student product is available in monthly trips (44trips) and weekly trips (10trips) packages.
The GMA Chief Operating Officer, Tshepo Kgobe said “At the Gautrain Management Agency we strive
to ensure that Gautrain is inclusive and accessible - especially to communities along the route. This
new student travel pass is in response to Gautrain listening to the needs of students along the route.
We urge students to take advantage of this new offer and to be part of Gautrain’s People on the Move”.
To make use of this offer there is a registration process which will be available online from 1 March
2021. Gautrain has partnered with Varsity Vibe to ensure an easy process in validating students and
affording them further discounts through the Varsity Vibe application. Detailed information will be
available on all Gautrain’s social media platforms and students can also email
firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.mygautrain.co.za for more information.
The Gautrain Management Agency (GMA) has placed the procurement of the Gautrain additional rolling stock and depot enhancement project on hold until further notice. The decision was taken in the light of the significant impact that the Covid-19 pandemic and the various lockdowns have had on passenger demand on the Gautrain
Road traffic volumes have also decreased significantly and the growth trajectory for people movements is likely to take some time to recover to pre-Covid levels. Thus, whilst the need for additional rolling stock remains, it is no longer as urgent as it was at the time of issuing the tender documents in 2019. The GMA will consider measures for addressing various needs as part of its future planning of the management of the Gautrain Project and its holistic requirements.
