Tangier (Tanger) Ville railway station

Jump to last reply

Sallam 'lekum all potential travelers to Morocco,

This is just a quick post to advise that Tangier's main railway station (Tanger Ville) is still closed due to modification work on its platforms and track configuration, as part of the country’s grand development of a 1,500km high-speed rail (HSR) network. The first stage currently under construction is between Casablanca and Tangier, where work began in 2011 on the proposed four-year project, though in reality the completion date will be somewhere nearer 2017. The new line will cut the journey time between Casablanca and Tangier from nearly five hours to around two hours, and is expected to carry up to ten million passengers a year. The end of the line is currently the penultimate station Tanger Morora (also spelled Moghogha), where passengers must alight. Expect to be greeted by a swarm of petite taxis offering to assist you in your forward travel arrangements (bargain hard for a 15dh fare into the city centre). The gare routière (bus station) is about 3km to the north-west of Tanger Morora, along the N2 Tangier-Tetouan highway. Along this 3km stretch of highway (navigable on foot if you don't wish to take a taxi) is a CTM ticket booth, where you can purchase tickets (and often board) for onward bus travel on the vast CTM network...thus negating the need to go all the way to the bus station.

Happy travels and ma'sallama,
Darren Humphrys
