I'll gratefull for all tips:
Are there any buses from Agadir to Casablanca? I heard there is a train but I am not sure if it wouldn't be faster by bus....
Or maybe local travel agencies organize 1 or 2 day trips from Agadir to Casablanca?I will be staying in Agadir but I am planning to be on the move and explore Morocco.
Thank you in advance for replies.
there are trains between Agadir and Marakech the first one leaves at 7 or 8 am.The cost is about 90DH.ONCF trains.takes about 4,5 hours.
Buses are very slow , 70DH.
Thanks, And is it possible to get directly to Casablanca?
There are no trains from Agadir, The furthest south the train goes is Marrakech. Take a Supratours or CTM bus to Marrakech and then a train to Cassablanca. If curiosity/ nostalgia is steering you towards Cassablanca, don't waste your time. It is a big bustling city with few relics of past glory except for some nice Art Deco buildings and the Biggest Mosque in Africa.
Marrakech is much more fun and closer to Agadir, Essaouira is also worth a visit.
So , why do they write on the site of oncf, that there are trains from Agadir to casa?
ONCF run both the railway and the Supratours bus service, If you buy a ticket from Cassablanca to Agadir or vice versa, you will travel by train and bus changing in Marrakech.
Its not a bad journey but it takes all day. both the tain and bus service in Morocco is reliable, clean and comfortable.
Hope that helps
Don't rely on public buses
the recommended buses are :
hiring cors grand taxi is comfortable but it costs more than train/bus tickets.
