Airport to Casabalnaca train,
How to go to Casabalanca from Airport Train or taxi or Bus options,
1- Most Reliable and cheap option.
Train to Casaport station,
This Train is fully in operation and reliable with many trips in the day ,
The train station stop in the Airport name is Casa Voayger, and the main train station in downtown Casabalanca is Casa Port is related to Toursitic and histoprical attractions,
you can chack the website for actual time tabel on this link www.oncf.ma , make sure it is .ma not .com
or try this qucker link directly Airport to casabalanca trains time tabel it has frequent departures from 7 am to 10 pm , with only one at midnight , the trains are clean effecient and reliable.
cost of the trip form Casa-voager to casa port is 150 MAd whic is 15 Euro in 2017 .
This way for transportation is not for all traveleres as you have to carry your bags up and down with you in the train and when you go out from the station the taxi drivers will stop and ask you do you need a Taxi , and can i help you , if you are used to using GPS and google maps ,and have already dowwnloaded the location of your hotel, it is a fun way to go but as i said it is not for the traveler with lots of bags or the traveler comming at night so you can go and take the other option wich is a taxi direct from the Airport oto Casabalanca downtown.
2- Taxi at the Casabalanca Airport to Casabaalnca down town hotels.
The Airport Taxi has it’s fixed goverment price but as you might have expected it would be amazing of you found a taxi to your hotel in Casablanca to do that , so it would be your first time to haggle and negotiat prices in the middle of the night with 10 taxi drivers and you are carring your bags, so most problebly you look depserate for ataxi and will go with them for their asking price make sure it is included with bags and for all the passengers with you
Aslo if you do not speak any french and never have delt with bargening with taxi drivers it would be a not so nice first time in Morroco or a third world country, so if you get arritated very quick and do not enjoy that make sure to arrange your transportation before you are their.
3- Booking you transfer before you travel,
you can book through multiple online agenciecy that take a commision of the local travel agenciecy or limosene transport operartors , such as Viator.com or get your guide.com , if you use this site localtrips.net, you will be sure that it is not only just a booking engine to take a commsiions there is a real person to take care of your information if something is missing or if you needed something like a car seat or you need to but a phone sim card.
4- Hotel pickup service,
If your hotel will provide a pick up service it is most problebly the most conviente as teh driver will be holding a sign at the airport arrival hall and take you directly to your hotel, but you have to expect two things as you used thereir serrvices for airport transportaion they will axpect that yuou will beook all ytour trips with them including the city guide and the dinner cooked at the hotel only for you ,….
and the other thing you need to worry about that they are most probley will send you a taxi driver how is a relative to the recepetion and you are not working with a reputatble liceneesed comapny , so just be assured that you have ewritten down the full address and anme of your hotel or Riad in Casabalanca, and it yould be better if you download it to Google maps on your phone.
This schedule is fixed and will not change unless there is extreme weather conditions and the police closes the roads , very rare to happen only when there is an extreme weather conditions.
Until the time i wrote this post , it is not available to book in advance by phone or email nor their website , but if you got there before 6 Am you will have a space available.
