Morocco’s National Railway Office (ONCF) has announced a new special train program to control the influx of travelers in Eid al Fitr.
Rabat – According to ONCF, The “Eid- al-Fitr Special” is set to be implemented from May 31 to June 9, and it will concern both conventional trains and the high-speed train known as “El Boraq.”
In order to facilitate travel, ONCF has also announced the addition of 320 trains each day, as well as an increase in the number of seats to reach 123,000 passengers per day.
To avoid overcrowding, The ONCF stated that ticket sales will be closed once the seats are 100% filled.
The Office is looking to improve travel conditions by reinforcing the team responsible for receiving and guiding travelers on stations and onboard.
In that context, and to avoid chaos at the train stations, the ONCF urges its customers to make the following arrangements:
Plan trips in advance by obtaining all the necessary information either by contacting their customer service or their website, by consulting their mobile app, “ONCF traffic,” or through their social media outlets.
Purchase tickets no later than the day before departure on the ONCF website or directly from the train stations.
Purchase round trip tickets to avoid long queues at the station.
The Office has a MAD 49 ticket promotion for travelers who will board the “Atlas” trains headed to Marrakech-Casablanca-Rabat-Fez-Tangier-Fez-Oujda-Nador.
