Bus to Tangier
There is no train or bus running from the airport, yet it is possible to get into the city by public transport. For this you first have to walk 2 kilometers to the roundabout where the streets Route Aeroport and National Route 1 (N1) intersect, this takes 20 to 25 minutes. You can choose to take bus I9 of ALSA in the direction of the bus station (Gare Routiere) and railway station (Gare Ferrovaire) in Tangier. Bus I9 runs on average every 30 minutes from and to Tangier.
The city centre can be reached faster with a so-called Grand taxi, a popular way of transportation in Morocco. Grand taxis drive inside (with the exception of Medina) and outside the city and normally accommodate six passengers. You share this taxi with random people who also need to be near your destination. The advantage is the low price compared to a normal cab, a disadvantage is the lack of comfort. The price for both modes of transport is about 5.00 MAD. The journey time to Tangier is 45 minutes. Please consult website and timetable ALSA for more information.
