Marrakech is the southern terminus of the ONCF, the Moroccan railway network, and Marrakech is well served by trains heading to/from Tangier, Rabat, Casablanca, and Fes.  For destinations without rail connections, ONCF provides modern coaches belonging to its SUPRATOURS subsidiary so you can comfortably continue your journey.

Whatever the station of departure, you can reserve your seat in the coach and purchase a combined rail and road ticket for travel end to end. The bus timetable coordinates with the train timetable and the bus terminal is right beside the station.

Tickets can be booked in advance and first class train coaches are recommended as they are fitted with air-conditioning.  Riad Chayma is a short taxi ride from the Marrakech rail station and can be pre-booked for convenience in advance.
