Casablanca is one of the largest and most commercially important cities in Africa, with an urban area that sprawls across into the capital Rabat.
Public transport here is adequate, with a fast rail link running directly and from the airport. There’s a reasonable network of local commuter services. The city has also invested in a single long tram line. However, it’s a slow way to cover any distance due to the sheer number of stops.
The most popular means of getting around is still by bus. The network is far more comprehensive, and it’s also amazingly cheap. However, so are taxis, and they are also very widely available.
