Marrakech Airport Bus Introduced
The days of having to haggle with taxi drivers at Marrakech airport may be over.For tourists arriving in the country for the first time, the effort to get a taxi for the six kilometre journey into the city has always been a problem and one that often leaves an unpleasant first impression. Although there have been attempts to control taxi drivers, until now it has had little effect.
The new bus service, operated by Spanish company Alsa City, will run every thirty minutes from Menara Airport and we are told it will stop at several popular destinations along the route.
The bus has been designated "number nineteen" and a one-way ticket costs 20 dirhams (£1.55) or just 30 dirhams return (£2.30) as long as you return within a fortnight.
