A new agreement between the ONCF and the Hassan II Foundation for the Social Work of Former Soldiers and Veterans introduces drastic reductions in train ticket prices for veterans and their families.
Rabat – Representatives of the Hassan II Foundation for the Social Work of Former Soldiers and Veterans (OSAMAC) and the National Railways Office signed an agreement on Wednesday, July 3, to ensure cheaper access to train tickets for military veterans and their dependents.
The partnership was signed in the presence of the Minister-Delegate for National Defense Abdeltif Loudyi as well as senior members of the Royal Moroccan Armed Forces.
For the families of soldiers killed or wounded during service, the new agreement provides a 75% discount on train ticket prices at any station in Morocco. This includes both the soldiers’ spouses and children, up until the age of 21 or 26 if the child remains in full time education.
Meanwhile, for retired servicemen, as well as their immediate families, the agreement will provide a 50% discount on train ticket prices.
The agreement also applies to the families of veterans who died after their military service has ended, as well as for veterans and retirees from the National Defense Administration (NAD).
For both of these categories, discounts apply to both first- and second-class train tickets on any ONCF train. They also apply towards tickets for the “Al Boraq” high-speed train system running from Casablanca to Tangier.
However, the flexibility of these discounts has its limits, with one exception being the Casablanca-Kenitra route, but only during peak operating hours.
