  Building the Gautrain rail
by PierreZA

Public transport is a problem in SA. We do not have the infrastructure which you will find in Europe. We are looking forward to the completion of a project called the Gautrain, which is an urban rail system serving Johannesburg (including the airport) and Pretoria. The first phase should be in use during 2010.
Bus services are different for different cities. Plans are made to improve public bus services.
Be careful to use minibus taxis, as they could be unsafe.
