Rabat – RATP Dev, the company managing Casablanca’s tramway, has announced a special schedule for Eid al-Adha.
Throughout the week of Eid al-Adha, starting Monday, August 20, until Friday, August 24, the Casablanca trams will increase service, leaving terminus stations every 15 minutes. However, the tram will only begin operating after 12 noon.
The first departures during the holiday will be at 12 noon from Sidi Moumen, 12:15 p.m. from Ain Diab, 1:47 p.m. from Ain Diab Plage p.m., and 1:40 p.m. from Facultes.
Eid al-Adha, the Islamic festival of sacrifice, will be celebrated Wednesday, August 22.
The National Office of Railways (ONCF) recently announced its “special Eid” transport plan. The railway company will increase service on the main axes of the rail network: Casablanca, Rabat, Fez, Marrakesh, Tangier, Oujda, and Nador.
In order to avoid queues, ONCF will facilitate ticket buying for passengers through providing additional ticket vending machines and reminding customers they can purchase tickets online on the ONCF website.
As the number of travelers reaches a peak during the Eid holiday while Moroccans travel home to celebrate with their families, the company will increase railway guards to ensure order and travelers’ safety.
