    Blue bus from Asilah to Tangier

    by henri123 Written Dec 8, 2014

    Nice bus service along the coast from Asilah to Tangier and back .

    It runs during daytime every 30 minutes and take about one hour ride to Tangier new stadium.

    From Tangier stadium take bus number to get downtown Tangier.

    As it is a local bus the cost is low = 6 Mad

    There is no CTM bus service from Asilah to Tangier.

    Bus to Asilah from Tangier

    by angiebabe Updated Apr 4, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Current price March 2009 is 16 dirham - and still only takes about 45 minutes to an hour - if you sit on the right hand side you will get nice sea and a few green pastoral views along the way - you might even see a camel or two on the beach!

    If you are coming from Tangier or particularly from the ferry from Spain then just catch a small taxi from the outskirts of the port area which is only 20 dirham though some might ask for 30 but negotiate before you get in - especially if theres only one of you - to the bus station and the buses go fairly frequently - about hourly - if it looks like youve just missed one and the next is not for quite a while then itd be worth heading for a grande taxi - they leave when their 6 seats are sold and are only a little more expensive than the bus - buy 2 seats for more comfort and better views - otherwise the bus is good too.

    Trolley men to help you with your luggage

    by angiebabe Written Apr 4, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As with most transport hubs around Morocco you will find there are pretty much always guys who have trolley things for carting - its very handy if youve arrived from a tiring trip and youve got luggage that you want some relief from carrying about yourself!

    I would recommend that you give these guys some business and let them cart it for you! Generally only costs about 10 dirham - 1 euro or just under £1 - give them some business and give yourself a break!

    Train, Bus and Taxi Stations

    by Doctor38 Updated Nov 30, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The train station is located onr the main street to Tangier 2 km out side the city. Don't bother waiting for a taxi, just walk to the city. Most trains between Tangier to Casablanca stop @ Asilah so train are probably the best way to get to town. @ the time of my visit the a new tation was under construction.

    The Bus station is located on the same mail street as the Train station. It is closer to the city. the place does not look like a bus station. It is clearly signed in Arabic and you should have no problems finding it if you can read. If you can just ask the locals and they'll point it to you. As the pictrue shows you'll see the no stop sign on the white wall and this should be your clue.

    The Grand taxi station is close by and it is closer to the city. The Petit taxi is not metered and I have never used them and I don't see why I any one would need to use one.

    Trains from Tanger to Asilah

    by bluegoat Written Apr 15, 2007

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are several trains from Tanger to Asilah and back daily and it is a fairly quick trip. Do check the time for the last train, and be careful with your possessions while in the station and on the train. Don't miss the great views of salt flats on the way. On arrival in Asilah, you may need to share a taxi with other passengers or rely on the kindness of locals to call you one - otherwise it's a long, hot and sandy walk into town.

    Leaving Asilah

    by kit_mc Written Nov 21, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    IMP: Be aware that the location of the bus station on the map in Lonely Planet doesn't appear to be correct. The bus station is located opposite the petrol station where Ave Mauritania and the main Rabat road meet. (Not on Ave Liberte as the guideboook says, or at least not out of season)

    Getting to Asilah from Tangier, we couldn't find any CTM buses going but caught one from the other bus station 'Gare Routiere' without any problems. It cost 10 dh plus 5 dh each for luggage.

    Trying to reach our end destination of Fes from Asilah was a bit more problematic, so if you can, try booking your bus ticket the day before. About 5 buses to Fes leave Asilah each day, but all the earlier ones were full so we ended up taking the bus to Rabat and staying a night there before moving on to Fes.

    The bus station in Asilah is a very simple affair with a couple of ticket offices and a small cafe (5 dh coffee), you'll be approached by the ticket guys soon enough and they will find you some route to get to your destination so easier to just leave it to them. The ticket to Rabat cost us 50 dh, plus 10 dh each luggage.

    When will we get on a bus?

    bus to tetouan and chefchouen

    by angiebabe Written Sep 14, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Confirm times when you are in Asilah but each morning, usually 1030 am, there is a direct bus to Tetouan - doesnt go via Tangier but south and then east saving a bit of time than going to tangier and waiting for a connecting bus to Tetouan.
    Quite nice scenic rouote too - though i have usually done it by car.

    mini bus to tangier

    by angiebabe Written Sep 14, 2006

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For those who dont mind joining in with how the locals do things the frequent minibuses that leave Asilah from its main bus station, same street as where the grande taxis leave from also, they are a cheap and easy way to get around.
    Only 10 dirham (75 pence) to the Tangier bus station (the one for locals, not the CTM bus station - which i have never used!) where you can there catch a petit taxi to the ferry terminal or into Tangier central, from here you can also catch the main buses to Tetouan and Chefchouen.

    Grande taxi to Tangier

    by angiebabe Updated Sep 14, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Getting to Asilah to and from Tangier is easy and cheap by grande taxi - when theres been two of us we have claimed the front seat (all seats of 6 need to be full before a taxi will leave and the front seat counts for two tickets!)
    so if travelling with a friend its ideal or pay for two seats which is what i did when i was travelling alone! its still cheap ie under £3 for 30-40 minutes fast and efficient transport and allows you best visibility if you are wanting to see whats going on around you or dont want to be squashed up amoungst 3 other men in the back seat!!

    Its for this ease of transfer too that its much recommended to stay in Asilah than Tangier for choice of location.

    From Tangier the grande taxis leave from their depot at the bus station - from the ferry terminal you need to catch a blue petit taxi to the grande taxi station - or you can catch a train to Asilah but then you are still quite a way out of town ie about 10 mins walk in a remote looking spot.

    To and around Asilah

    by matcrazy1 Updated Jul 4, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Asilah is la city ocated at the Atlantic ocean coast 46 km (29 mi) south of Tanger, 41 km (25 mi) north of Larache and 240 km (149 mi) north of Rabat.

    I arrived to Asilah from Tangier by my own car. When I reached the city walls I turned right to Av. Hassan II and reached the square (Pl. Zelaka) at the end of the walls where I parked my car. The road from Tangier was of suprisingly good quality and almost empty. The alternative is to get a shared taxi or normal, scheduled bus. You can use train too, but the railway station is 2.5 km (1.5 mi) outside the town.

    Inside the town I walked. The El Kamra tower was a good orientation point for me.

    To Tanger

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Asilah's train station is about a 30 minute walk from the town and there aren't many taxis around. If you head to nearby Tanger, you will be better of to take/share a grand taxi from Place Mohammed V.
