Where to board buses heading to Marrakech in Casablanca

  • There are several bus stations within Casablanca with buses that operate the Casablanca -Marrakech route. Most travelers prefer taking CTM and Supratour buses when traveling in Morocco. However, Supratour buses don't operate along the Casablanca- Marrakech route currently. CTM buses have 2 bus stations in Casablanca.
  • The main CTM bus station is at Gare des Voyageurs, just near Casa Port Railway station.
  • The second station is in Maarif at Rue Leon L' Africain. You can easily locate Maarif on Google maps.
  • Tip: Travelling from the main station in easier, it's nearer to the airport and is within the CBD.

Bus Booking.

  • It's impossible to book CTM buses from outside Morocco. I've tried and failed several times. Though you really don't have to make bus reservations earlier. CTM has buses leaving from Casablanca to Marrakech hourly.

Important Info:

  • The last CTM bus from Casablanca to Marrakech is at 2300hr, the last bus is a comfort plus bus (premium).
  • They don't allow people to board buses before departure time in Morroco due to security reasons.
