Travel between Marrakesh and El Jadida

Hi all, I am going to Morroco in May 2013. My question is I'd like to get from Marrakesh to El Jadida by public transport, preferably direct, without having to go through Casablance. I heard there was a direct bus with CTM, but I couldn't find it on their website. Anyone have any tips?

When checking out transport from major cities not all the destinations may be listed in your guide book as there are so many, so look under El Jadida for buses to Marrakech (if there's going to Marrakech, it's extremely likely there will be one in return).

The wording in Lonely Planet implies there is no CTM bus (which is what you seem to have already found out) but states there is a local bus.

My tip: if you don't already have a guidebook it's a good idea to get one.

Many buses bound for Essaouira from Marrakech. You can either book a CTM ticket or Supratour one . Regarding the later, you can check the timing here; www.oncf.ma

Hello!We are travelling to Morocco in June, and were wondering where to go for a few days to the beach. I think that El Jadida would be great choice, because from there we could visit Casablanca. Now I am trying looking into how we could get from Marrakech to El Jadida. Is there a direct train route or would we have to go to Casablanca first? How long is the journey by train?

I appreciate your reply!

You can check train timings on www.oncf.ma

If you don't understand French, google for just 'ONCF' and click on 'translate site'.

Correspondence in train schedules means 'change trains at'.

Tim,

Thank you I found the site, however, it was quite slow, I thought I might try it tomorrow or so. As I read somewhere, trainticket is about EUR 20 on first class.

John,

Thanks for your quick reply.

Actually we would like to enjoy a few days in El Jadida, at a resort and make a daytrip to Casablanca (we would have 3 whole days left, so 2 days hanging around El Jadida and 1 day going to Casablanca would be perfect). I read that the beach at El Jadida is quite remote, nobody sunbathing there. How many hours does it take to get to El Jadida from Marrakech by train?
