Gautrain, an initiative of the Gauteng Province Government (GPG), is a state-of-art rapid rail network in Gauteng. The rail connection comprises of two links, namely a link between Tshwane and Johannesburg and a link between OR Tambo International Airport and Sandton. Apart from the three terminal stations of these two links, seven other stations are linked by approximately 80 kilometres of rail along the route.
The GMA was established in 2006, in terms of the GMA Act (Act 5 of 2006). Critical to the GMA mandate is to ensure that the Gautrain System operates in a sustainable manner with a clear commitment to governance and the GPG’s primary economic objectives.
