Oujda: Orientation, Arrival and Transport
Oujda is divided into the usual Medina and Ville Nouvelle. The new town is quite linear and easy to navigate: the main street is Boulevard Mohammed V, along which you’ll find most restaurants, banks and hotels. The Medina lies at the south-end of the street.
The train station is a five-minute walk to the west of the Medina, along Boulevard Zerktouni. A further 15 minutes walk from here, across Oued Nachef, is the bus station (gare routière).
The main bus station, gare routière, is across the Oued Nachef and operates several daily departures to the main towns around the country.
CTM services operate two-daily buses to Casablanca (via Taza), Fez, Meknes, Rabat and Tangier (via Taza, Fez and Meknes). Other independent transport companies operate further daily services to Casablanca, Fez, Meknes, Berkane, Nador and Taza. In all, you are unlikely to wait more than 45 minutes to board a bus to your destination regardless of what time of the day you turn up.

Grand Taxis heading north to Nador, Saidia and Berkane leave from near the train station north of town, at the junction of Rue ibn Abdelmalek and Boulevard Mohammed Derfoufi.
Oujda Airport, les Angads, is 15 kilometers north of town just off the N2.
The national airline, Royal Air Maroc, operates daily flights to Casablanca, Agadir, Marrakech and Madrid. There are also twice-weekly flights to Tangier, five flights a week to Paris and direct flights to Amsterdam, Brussels and Marseilles.
