    Train Stations in Meknès...Gare El Amir Abdelkader

    by Bernhadette Updated Aug 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Don't get confused, when your are looking for "the" train station in Meknès. There are two stations, the main station and the "Gare El Amir Abdelkader".
    The main train station is about 1km away from the city's center.
    Getting out at the "El Amir Abdelkader" is the better choice if you lodge in one of the hotels of the Ville Nouvelle. From there you can take a taxi. If your luggage is not to heavy and you want to get a first impression of the town and the lively center of Meknès, you can also walk.

    Timetables and train connections can be found at:

    Meknès by Bus: C.T.M

    by Bernhadette Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are looking for a cheap way to travel to Meknès, taking the bus is a good idea.
    The most comfortable are the busses by the C.T.M. ("Compagnie de Transports Marocains").

    The C.T.M bus station is situated east of the Ville Nouvelle, at the Avenue des Forces Royales / Avenue de Fès. From here busses leave, to all major Moroccan cities.

    It is advisable to buy your ticket some time before the departure, not right before the busses leave; at that time all seats might be taken. You can check in your luggage in the morning, so you don't have to carry it around with you all day long.
    At the concourse there is a little café, where you can spend your time in case you have to wait.

    Meknès, 43, Bd. Mohammed V

    stations

    by iaint Written Dec 27, 2009

    The city has 2 railway stations – the main one Meknès, and the other is El-Amir Abdelkader. My Lonely Planet claims the latter is “more convenient” but doesn’t explain why!

    My fellow travellers told me to get off at El-Amir Abdelkader as we approached the city, but didn’t explain why!

    So, I’m still guessing what is wrong with the main station.

    Anyway, I got a petit taxi right away and was at my hotel (Ibis) in 5 minutes max.

    Getting around Meknes

    by barryg23 Written Apr 29, 2007

    It’s much easier to find your way around Meknes than Fes. It’s quite a long distance between the Ville Nouvelle and the Medina so if you are staying in the Ville Nouvelle it’s best to take a petit taxi (or your own car) to the medina. We were a little worried about driving in the medina but there were no problems and it was easy enough to find our way. We found a large parking area just west of Place El Hadim, which cost 10 Dh for the day.
