The 26-59 ANS card allows to travel on berths and double berths, with a 25 percent discount offered from Monday to Friday by respecting the booking deadlines and the allocated quotas. The semestrial card costs MAD 370, while the annual card costs MAD 530.
Overall, the company’s travel cards offer a minimum discount of 25 percent on the price of train tickets. The discounts can even reach 50 percent under certain conditions with an unlimited number of trips throughout the validity of the card.
These cards are also available for both the 1st and 2nd class of the train lines.
