Any update on transportation from Tanger Med to Tanger Ville

Hi experts

I have been watching the exchanges about ferry transport between Algeciras and Tanger Med with interest. As we are about to undertake this trip I have also been looking up the ONCF timetable and note that it is a bus service - Supratours - between Med and Ville, which seems to be very infrequent! Does anyone know yet if there is another shuttle service available, or how much a taxi ride (metered) would be?

As things stand we arrive in Tanger Med at 10 am and there doesn't seem to be a Supratours bus until after 1 pm!!

Now that we've done it I'd like to put on record that it's very straightforward. There is a free shuttle bus service for holders of ferry tickets. What happened was that we all got on an airport style bus on disembarking from the FRS ferry at Tanger Med, and were taken a short distance to the Gare Maritime at Tanger Med where we went through a very cursory customs screening process prior to getting onto the bus that took us the 50 kms to the old port of TangerVille. This took about 45 minutes all up. There is a shuttle to connect with all ferries into and out of Tanger Med. It was all very organised!

Thank you SydneyTeviot. There's nothing like getting it direct from the horse's mouth, as we say. I was not sure, so I could not reply before. I sometimes pass the Tanger Med port, and I see now a large contingent of buses which are obviously taking people into Tanger town. Did they charge you for the bus, or is it free?

I am told a taxi from the Tanger Med port to town would probably cost around 200 dirhams.

Hello Zohor

The shuttle bus is entirely free so long as you can show your ferry ticket(s). It really couldn't be easier - but you have to allow about an extra hour for the whole process.

Thanks to all you destination experts. You do a fantastic job. I use Trip Advisor all the time - as an independent traveller it is absolutely "the best".

Best regards

Hi Fellow Travellers,

I am about to do the same trip, but are catching the night train up from Marrekech.

If buses are coming from Tanger Med to Ville, I am assuming that they go the other way (from Viille to Med). Can anyone confirm? If this is the case, can we purchase our ferry ticket for Tanger Med at Tanger Ville?

I understand you need a valid ferry ticket for the bus, or is it best to purchase online?

I know that when the new port was opened for passengers last year the alternative method to get into Tanger Ville rail station was to use some kind of bus service between the port and Gare Ksar Sghir station which is not very far away. I also think that the rail network is being improved and that the line is to be opened between the Tanger-Med port and Tanger Ville BUT I have no idea when !

Let us hope that some kind local expert can shed some light.

Does anyone know if the free shuttle service is for ALL ferry companies, or just FRS?
