The central parts of Agadir are walk-able, but if you are tired there are plenty of local buses to take you to nearby beaches or suburbs of the city. Remember to have coins to pay the ticket since the driver doesn't carry a lot of change. The fare is 5-10 Dirhams. The main local bus station is located next to the main grand taxi rank at the south end of Rue de Fes, approx. 20 minutes drive from the city centre. It is very usual to arrive at Inezgane though, which is the bus hub of the region.
Taxi

Taxi

By far the easiest and quickest way to get around town is by the cream-coloured Grand taxi or the orange Petit taxi. You find them either from the taxi rank at the South end of Rue de Fes or Rue Yacoub el-Mansour in New Talborjt or by hailing one off the street. The Petit taxis are only allowed to drive inside the city. The Grand taxis only take at least 6 passengers, but you can also pay extra and hire the whole taxi. Fares are charged on the meter or discussed in advance.
