Where is the bus station location in fes?

I would like to know where exactly is the bus station if I'm Travelling from fes to chefchoun? Was thinking of ctm or supratours bus. Is the bus station in the old or new medina?

These are different bus stations. The CTM is in neighborhood ATLAS, The supratour is next to the train station. There is a 3rd bus station which is close to the old medina. Gare routiere.

Yes, both reliable. I've used CTM for Chefchaouen.

If you leave from the Gare routière close to Blue gate, need to be early.

Yes you can Zozi, the Gare Routiere Boujloud ( main city bus station) is located off the main peripheral highway, R501, exit the Fes el Bali Medina through the blue gate Bab Boujloud, walk across the square and exit the square through Bab Mahrouk opposite the cemetery and turn right into the downhill road, the bus station is on the next access road on your left.....

There is a CTM parcel office (Messagerie) on your left as you enter the bus station where you can buy your ticket to Chefchaouen, the last time I made this journey I bought my ticket for the following day and was told to arrive back at the Messagerie half an hour before the listed departure time, a shuttle coach picked me up and transferred me to the CTM private bus station in Place Atlas and the journey started from there.

There are also other independent bus companies operating services to Chefchaouen, make enquiries at the various ticket offices before buying a CTM ticket, there might be other buses leaving sooner than the CTM but these don't have internet websites, you just have to find this local information at the Gare Routiere. Beware of ticket touts working on commission for the independents, they might try to sell you an unsuitable ticket for a bus departure a long way into the rest of the day, so the best advice is to shop around or buy your CTM ticket a day in advance.

Hoping this alleviates any confusion......

The CTM bus station is located in the new medina, I would recommend the CTM rather than a regular bus.

The others are located in the Gare routiere near the old medina. About 5 mins walk from the Bab Boujloud

Are you familiar with coming the other way round? That is to say, if I were in the Chefchaouen bus station, what place name would I use to request tickets for the bus station near the medina that Zozi is leaving from? "Gare Routiere Boujloud"? Or is there another name that I should use or listen for when purchasing a ticket at the counter in Chefchaouen?
