For one day trip, Amman is pretty well located. During a weekend, I was willing to visit Jerash. One way of going there is to call a taxi. That’s what the concierge from the hotel suggested. Cost : 35JD + 7JD/hour. Another taxi driver proposed us the trip for 50JD…
Now there is another alternative, take the bus!! This is quite an experience, even not every local inhabitants have already done it ;-)
...but for 0.5 JD we arrived at Jerash without any problem!!
You can take JETT bus from Abdali Station to and from Damascus, Syria. The cost is JD5. This bus the bus that you can expect. The bus leaves 10am and 3pm daily and it takes about 4 hours for the whole journey, including the bording crossing. It is generally efficient. Remember there is JD5 for land departure tax where you need to pay before you get your departure immigration chop! There is an exchange counter inside the immigration building.
We found the bus services to be fine, both to and from Amman,
We used the Bus to get from Jerash to Amman thensouth to Karak, at the beginning of our trip.
Then again at the end to get the bus from Madaba to Amman.
I think the bus station in the photo is Zacara
The bus to city centre leaves every 30 min,the ticket costs 3JD and is about 50 to 1 hour by bus (mini yellow bus).
The bus is located just front of exit.
