Airport-approved operators and the hotels courtesy services provide taxi, bus and shuttle services between Pretoria and the airport. Transport options in Pretoria include taxi, bus, car rental and limousine chauffeur services. The road infrastructure is sound with clear signage. Event planners could arrange with hotels to provide a shuttle service to and from the conference venue.

Getting Around
Most visitors to Gauteng get around by vehicle. The province has a well-developed road network, with several arterial routes leading into the main centres of Johannesburg and Pretoria:

  • The N1 is a north/south freeway that bisects Gauteng, linking Johannesburg and Pretoria
  • The N3 runs from Sandton through the south-east parts of the province
  • The N4 runs east/west through Pretoria
  • The N12 runs east/west through Johannesburg

The Gautrain
The Gautrain is a hassle-free way of getting to and from O.R. Tambo International Airport.

The rapid-rail system links Johannesburg, Pretoria and OR Tambo International airport and it has stations at central Johannesburg, Rosebank, Sandton, Malboro, Rhodesfield, OR Tambo International Airport, Midrand, Centurion, Pretoria and Hatfield.

Hundreds of closed-circuit television cameras cover all Gautrain stations and trains, and guards maintain a 24-hour presence.

Gautrain has a specialised bus which facilitates commuters getting closer to destinations. A Gautrain gold card enables you to load single or multiple trips on the train or Gautrain buses, which operate around the stations.
