Travel from Marrakech to Imlil

Please can you tell me how to get from Marrakech to Imlil (this question was asked elsewhere but I need a bit more detail).

I have looked on the CTM website and I cannot find a ticket from Marrakech to Asni.

Is there a CTM bus to Asni?

Where does it depart from in Marrakech?

(I don't want to get a grande taxi).

Many thanks in advance.

CTM dont go to Asni. I dont think any of the local buses go that far either, route maps: alsa.ma/fr/marrakech/itineraire-per-urbain Looks like L35 would take you are far as Tahanout which is on the way to Asni/Imlil.

I have read about a bus to Asni in the past but I dont know the details, grand taxi really is the easiest option.

It's a few years since I checked but there used to be a bus out of Marrakech's gare routiere to Asni departing at 10.30am daily. Tickets could be bought from the Ligne 3 ticket bureau inside the bus station.

There are buses to Asni, but the best way is grand taxi.

Why are you scared of getting a seat in a grand taxi?

Many thanks for your replies.

(Not afraid to take a grande taxi - I prefer taking public transport wherever I go ... buses in China, trains in India, trains in Japan.)

Will see if I can get a local bus, if not will have to take taxi.

Thanks again

I've seen Alsa buses far south of Asni so there's definitely a service.

A seat in a collective taxi is normally around the same price as a bus, and you'll have to get a taxi anyway from Asni to Imlil.

In Morocco, shared grand taxis are effectively a form of public transport - you can just buy 1 seat (or 2 if you want to be more comfortable!) rather than pay for the whole car

Hi,

You should be able to get a grand taxi for around 300 Dirhams (ie 50 Dhs per seat).

Many thanks for your reply.

300 Dh sounds a very good price. I guess this is the price for local people!

Our rihad quoted 800Dh.

How can we hire a grand taxi for 300Dh?
