Upgrading of urban transport

Because of the major projects initiated during this decade in the metropolitan area of Temara Rabat Salé, this area is undergoing a sea of change that will create a new dynamic both in terms of urban transport and in terms of upgrading infrastructure.

As such, a major project to upgrade urban transport has already been initiated, through two complementary components: the bus and tramway.

As such, a major project to upgrade urban transport has already been initiated, through two complementary components: the bus and tramway.
The network set up revolves around both the renewal of the existing bus fleet through the introduction of 400 new buses of which 150 are articulated, and around the redesign of the lines, and also the modernization of ticketing, improving route circulation and installation of modern bus shelters. This new approach offers modernity, reliability and comfort to our fellow citizens in their daily travels, and all that for a low tariff as well as special rates for various high school and college students and in a general way all the families, including those on a low income.

The tram fits in perfectly with the objective of upgrading the metropolitan area’s urban transport, since in tandem with buses it allows the development of an integrated transport system.

Indeed, the network, in its first phase, will be configured in two lines: the first connecting Hay Karima in Sale to the neighbourhood of Agdal and the Universities in Rabat and the second connecting the neighbourhood of Bettana in Sale to the neighbourhood of l’Océan in Rabat, at the hospital Moulay Youssef, along the Medina.

In addition, a common core of 3 km will connect Sale’s town centre  to Rabat’s town centre, crossing the Bouregreg valley over the future Moulay Al Hassan bridge.

Thus, the global bus-tram network will provide an appropriate solution to the public transport problem in Greater Rabat-Salé-Temara, through comfortable, environmentally friendly and modern transportation, ensuring a high regularity of service.
