The Gautrain system has 24 train sets, each consisting of four cars. This is equivalent to 96 rail cars designed to run at an operational speed of 160 km per hour. Of the 96 rail cars, ten are specifically customised for use on the airport link, and contain additional features such as extra luggage space and wider seats. The other 86 rail cars are designed for commuter service.
