Taza: Orientation, Arrival and Transport
Taza, like every other Moroccan town, is split into two parts: the medina (old quarters) and the Ville Nouvelle (new town).
Place de l’indépendance is the main square of the ville nouvelle – where the banks, hotels, restaurants and CTM bus station are. The Medina – usually referred to as Taza Haute or Higher Taza – is situated 2 kilometres from Place de l’Indépendance. The main square in the Medina is Place Aharrach.
To get from the Ville Nouvelle to Taza Haute – the Medina -, take local buses (3dh) or hire a petit taxi (5dh) to take you from the Place de l’Indépendance in the Ville Nouvelle to Place Aharrach in the Medina.
All buses leave right next to the train station. There is a morning departures to Casablanca, stopping at Fez, Meknes and Rabat. Two other morning services depart to Oujda and Nador and other overnight buses leave to Tangier.
