Gautrain has introduced a new dedicated student travel pass.
According to the GMA chief operating officer Tshepo Kgobe, as from the 1st of 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 (44 trips) and weekly trips (10 trips) packages.
“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,” said Kgobe.
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.
