The Environmentally-friendly busses services will be taken over by Spanish bus company Alsa.
According to Ahmed El Moutassadik, deputy mayor of Marrakech, this decision was taken following a meeting between Mohamed Larbi Belcaid, the city’s mayor and Abdelfattah Lebjioui, the Wali of the Marrakech-Safi region in the presence of officials of institutions and authorities concerned.
The eco-friendly vehicles are expected to be 12 meters long and have a capacity of 71 seats. The busses will also ensure accessibility for disabled people. The other 13 buses are expected to be operational later in 2017.
The Spanish company has already set up the prices for the new buses services. Moroccans will have to pay MAD 100 per day and MAD 150 for two days, while foreigners have to pay MAD 150 per day and MAD 200 for two days, according to Moroccan media.
