Cape Town Airport Rail Link

Currently, there is no direct connection between a Rail station and Cape Town Airport but the project has been proposed.  

Even though, it is possible to get to the nearest train station in Cape Town by some of the transportation means available at the airport.

Cape Town Railway Station is served by the Metrorail trains and by long-distance rail services (Western Cape commuter rail network) which terminate at the station.


The nearest railway station, Cape Town Railway Station, is located 21 km from the Airport, at downtown.
