(MENAFN - Morocco World News) Rabat – launched on Friday the construction work of Rabat's new bus station, a development project near the motorway network and sports complex Moulay Abdallah.
Rabat's future bus station will be designed with modern architecture, optimizing spaces for passenger management, and will be equipped with equipment that meets international requirements for safety, security, and quality of service.
