    Thank you Gerald. Yes I was referring to the metered sedan taxis and not the mini-bus ones. I'll be coming in from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe and my final destination is a lodge about 11km from the station. Leaving will not be a problem as I have made arrangements with a shuttle-service to take me to Jo'burg where I will be flying out. Considering the distance from the station to the lodge I figured it would make sense to get a cab instead of hiring a shuttle. From what you say I guess it does make sense to take the shuttle service option. Also, seeing that Greyhound arrives around 5am, how safe would it be to wait a while at the bus station before a shuttle/cab would come to pick me up?

    greyhound and several bus companies have lounges in their ticket office where you may wait safely for your shuttle.

    There are taxis parked at the entrance road to the station. they are unmarked and can be recognized by a small sign on their roof. They are a common sight in jnb park station, eastgate mall and in pretoria bus station and are used by locals also. No idea on how safe they are but they are always there whenever i come to bring or pickup my friends from these areas.
