The city is composed of two regions, Medina (old city) and Ville Nouvella (new city), both of which are easily reached by certain means of transportation. In Marrakech, the vehicles offering service in urban transportation are operating very punctually. The fact that the highways are modern and ordered has also a big influence on this.

Means of urban transportation are also extremely comfortable and affordable in terms of the ticket prices. In Marrakech, buses, taxis and shared cars offer service in urban transportation. The fact that the city is not large in terms of the surface area also offers the opportunity to use vehicles such as motorcycles and bicycles. Using train is a common option throughout the country, but the trains under the management of ONFC company do not provide urban transportation services. While the train provides an intercity transportation service, the train route also passing through Marrakech carries passengers to Casablanca, Tangier, Rabat and Fez.

You can take advantage of the buses with your ticket that you will buy by paying 4 dirhams. It is possible to get your ticket in the bus.

You can also evaluate the taxi option if you don’t want to use the buses. These taxis, called petit taxis, do not have the authority to get out of the city.

Bus
