Ammam to Jerusalem?

by MetteWinter

My friend and I are arriving in the Amman (AMM)airport. Where can we a find bus schedule that goes to Jerusalem from there? Or what would the best way to travel?


Re: Ammam to Jerusalem?

by TheWanderingCamel

The is no bus that runs directly between Amman and Jerusalem. From Amman, you must take a shared-taxi from one of the taxi offices near to the Abdali station or take a Jett bus to the King Hussein Bridge. If you choose to go the bridge route once you have passed through the Jordanian controls you take a bus across the bridge, pass through the Israeli controls and then take a shared-taxi to the Damascus Gate in East Jerusalem. There's no other way to do it. If you're returning to Amman from Jerusalem you will have to take a servis taxi from the Bridge to Amman as the Jett buses don't pick people up at this point.

You don't say when you are travelling. You need to be aware that the situation is volatile and normal arrangements can change at short notice so if your trip is a way off you need to check the situation closer to the time.

There are buses from TRUST International that go to Tel Aviv and Bethlehem.
I think they are daily. Otherwise you just go straight to Allenby (King Hussain ccrossing) and go through the treadmill. It will take a minimum of 3/4 hours from Amman - Jerusalem - sometimes a lot longer sometimes shorter.

It takes 40 minutes from Amman - King Hussain crossing.
It takes about 2 hors + to go through the crossing
It takes 40 minutes to get to Jerusalem from the border.
Not including waiting times for taxis etc but its not that long.
You can take a private taxi if you want to hurry.

Just spoke to a visitor to Jerusalem today - stevemt - that crossed the border from Amman yesterday. He left Amman at 8 am and was at Damascus Gate at 11! Unusually good timing.

The other alternative of course is to fly - I believe that both Royal Jordanian and El Al have 2 flights weekly.

Travel Tips for Amman

about the people

by call_me_rhia

Jordanian people are wonerfully warm and caring: everywhere I went I was stopped by people who simply wanted to know where I was from and to thank me for visiting their country. Or salespersons in shops who would not even let me carry the packet of cigarettes I wanted to buy. Such kindness, I have not met with anywhere else. My wonderful friend Jibrail who showed me the "other" Amman and the surrounding area - and Sam, the Palestinian taxi driver who would wait with his taxi for me until my friend arrived (often late, for the record)

What to wear.

by Openseas

At all hotels are basically like any in the world. Swimming pools are the same, its not offensive to wear a bikini. However, I wore a long sleeve cotton shirt and longish shorts in the daytime whilst shopping.

Summer Flea Market II

by 1W1V about Street stall

The JARA Friday Flea Market. JARA is the Jabal Aman Residents Association, which was set up in July of last year with the purpose of
maintaining and preserving the identity of the neighborhood. Local handicraft

Taxi Fare.

by Openseas

It costs around 20 dinars to the hotel from the airport by taxi. There is little public transport available and most people just use taxis as petrol is VERY cheap in Amman.

The main type of taxi is a yellow taxi but you can also hire a white taxi but they are written in Arabic.

Most taxi drivers speak English.

The BEST!!

by tashakeiko about the blue fig

This was one of the BEST restaurants I have visited outside of America. The decor is so modern and cool. Nothing in America is like it. The food, staff and clientale are ultrachic and international. Try the Tuna Cheese Balls. They are what dreams are made of. They have awesome drinks too, which is saying alot for a Muslim country. I wish I could remember the name of the blueish-purplish drink I had there but TRUST is was the bomb!! The breakfast is cool too. I got this large bread with cream cheese and jelly smeared on top. It was awesome!! Holla at the Blue Fig anytime your in Jordan. It is worth a trip. (Now if I can only get one in Houston, Texas, I'd be happy!) Tuna Cheese Balls
