The passengers in vehicles circuit benefits from infrastructure that allows for the physical separation of vehicle traffic in and out of Morocco from check-in to boarding, with total separation of freight flows sent through Tanger Med Passenger port. This separation has made it possible to double processing capacity and reduce passenger transit times during peak periods while ensuring better conditions of comfort, safety, and security. And to further optimize transit time during medium and low traffic periods, a new passenger vehicle route has been developed to add a new border inspection area to fluidify traffic within the Port.

Automobile Access is the gateway for travelers in vehicles to purchase or confirm tickets. Travelers will also be able to purchase and confirm tickets online to avoid waiting in the ticketing and confirmation zone.

This access zone is equipped with all the necessary services for travelers such as food and beverage services, currency exchange, sanitary facilities, an information desk, a large broadcasting screen for instant display of vessel departure and arrival times, and green and covered areas. Additionally, a space of 1.8 ha that serves as a Port Regulation Zone has been developed and equipped with the necessary services for waiting passengers.
