Getting There in MeknesEdit This
Buses run in all directions (Rabat, Casa, Tangiers, Rissani, Fes, er-Rachidia). An impracticality is that they leave from one of the two bus stations. The old one is in the Ville Nouvelle (av. Mohammed V, for the CTM buses), the new one in the old city, near the Mellah.
Leaving the train at the "El Amir Abdelkader" is the better choice if you lodge in one of the hotels of the Ville Nouvelle. From there you can take a taxi. If your luggage is not to heavy and you want to get a first impression of the town and the lively center of Meknès, you can also walk.

If you are looking for a cheap way to travel to Meknès, taking the bus is a good idea.
The most comfortable are the busses by the C.T.M. ("Compagnie de Transports Marocains").
The C.T.M bus station is situated east of the Ville Nouvelle, at the Avenue des Forces Royales / Avenue de Fès. From here busses leave, to all major Moroccan cities.
It is advisable to buy your ticket some time before the departure, not right before the busses leave; at that time all seats might be taken. You can check in your luggage in more..
