Staying in Gauteng for the holidays? Stand a chance to win yourself a R500 Gautrain card by simply showing us your #GautrainStaycation photos and selfies!

Here’s how:

  1. Make sure you’re following us on Instagram (@thegautrain)
  2. Take a picture of yourself in any of our stations, or on our trains or buses – in fact, anywhere on the Gautrain system
  3. You can also take a photo of sights and landmarks accessible via the Gautrain system that is not a selfie
  4. Be creative with your angles, settings and backdrops – show us how Gautrain gets you around the city!
  5. Post your picture on Instagram with the hashtag #GautrainStaycation and tag us (@thegautrain)

Show us how you're using the Gautrain, Gautrain buses and Gautrain midibus shuttles to get you safely and conveniently to where you need to go – to the shops, restaurants, work, gym, airport, wherever – these holidays, and your creative snapping could bag you a golden card for Mzansi's golden train!

We will be selecting and posting the winners across our social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram).

There's a total of 20 Gautrain cards up for grabs, each preloaded with R500 to get your 2021 #GautrainJourneys off to a cracking start!
