Transportation from Mohammed V Airport

I am trying to get to Meknes. I am due to arrive at the airport in Casablanca at 6:00am on August 2, 2003. How do I get to the train station once I arrive? I do not want to get lost nor have much time to. Will a taxi get me there faster? If so how much can I expect to pay for a trip that far?

Hello you! There is a trainstation close to the aeroport Med V .You'd better take a train to Mekness from there. Perhaps, you should change train in Rabat. Otherwise, a private taxi would be much more expensive than by train... The taxidriver may ask about us$100.00 or even more... You are welcome here. Have good trip!

hi you have a trainstation inside the airport with train going to casablanca voyageur (name of the station, not casa port) very often. from there you have train almost every hour or two to meknes. some shedules: 7h15 arrival 10h31 - 8h15 arrival 11h37-10h15 arrival 13h48. the prices from casa voyageur to meknes are around 60-80 dirhams (6 to 10 dollars) in second class and from 90 to 120 dirham in first class. for more information you can check the morrocan train website: [original link] i hope you speak french since there is no english version. a taxi would not get you any faster and will cost you a lot of money. I hope you will enjoy you stay in this beautiful country. yas

Always remeber that moroccans always like to rip americans, ozzys, nzelands british and canadians off. A normal taxi to 6km can usualy cost maximum 3 us dollars. if you offer 50 dirhams (5 dollars) , stick to your arguing money and you'll be able to get the taxi for it. remember that100 is almost the national minimum wage and if you pay that you're actually paying a lot of money that a simple moroccon would pay onl y 2$ or 3$. don't allow that to happen please. Also good is to rent a car for your self. you have highway that goes from casablanca to fes passing not far in meknes. roads are not that bad and driving should be ok. a car cost not more than 30$ 40$ 45$ 50$ dollars a day. good luck, yours Joao Leitao

I believe there is a train station at or near the airport. Trains are slow though. Almost 5 hours to Meknes. Taxis are also possible. You can negociate one for about 700 dirhams so it depends how many you are sharing with ;)
Have a nice time ;)
