How long it will take?
there is no tram station near the mosque - the closest is Place Nations Unies which is still a long way, probably 30mins walk. Check the map here: casatramway.ma/files/large/adeb1adc7422fbaed…
a 2nd tram line is currently under construction, Im not sure if that will have a stop any closer but anyway its not going to be operational until the end of this year
When you leave the train at Casa Voyageurs and exit the railway station you will be approached by swarms of Petit taxi drivers on the concourse, bearing offers of a taxi to your intended destination, these taxis have meters but you will be a lucky man indeed if you can find a "cabbie" willing to zero his meter and switch it on, most will prefer to haggle a fare, and in the knowledge that you are a gullible foreign tourist the asking price will be extortionate.
To avoid this unpleasant stressful encounter I recommend wafting aside the greedy drivers and walking out to the tram stop on the main road, keep to the right hand side stop, buy your 8 dirham ticket at the ticket machine, instructions are displayed in French and English, then walk into the green "entree" entrance press your ticket orange colour side down on the barrier screen, when you hear a "ping" push the rotating barrier to open it and walk onto the platform to await the city-bound tram arriving on ten minute frequencies, keep your ticket safe until you reach your destination you will need it to open the barrier by again pressing it down on the exit barrier screen. If you need any assistance there are agents wearing yellow vests at each tram stop.
Inside the carriages are route plans which will clearly display United Nations Square, this is the stop where you need to alight, the passing tram stations are also announced in French by the public address system, yours is (phonetically) ......"Plass naaseeong oonee" ....Place Nations Unies, from here you have two choices, either try to flag down a moving, working red Petit taxi which is less likely to overcharge you on the fare or if you are fit, walk down Avenue Felix Houphouet Boigny pictured here...
At the foot of this busy road just before the port entrance turn left into Boulevard des Almohades, then it's a straight walk to the Mosque, estimated walking time from UN square to Bvd des Almohades ten minutes, then half an hour to the mosque, it's all on flat terrain and a pleasant introduction to Casablanca's city streets.
You can take the tramway to " place des nations unis " and then walk through the old medina for like 15 minutes. However if you decide to take a cab tell the driver to use the meter cause it only costs around 15-18 dirhams from Casavoyageurs to the mosque, if they don't accept just walk away from that crowded place and take a passing one.Edited: 15 February 2018, 04:44
