I wrote it to help you enjoy your time in our beloved Jordan

The public buses does not have any time schedule in Jordan, therefor as a rule of thumb if you start your trip at 9 am there is buses and you will get there. 

Fees ; the fees keep changing and sometimes negotiable they might ask for 4 to 7 jd per person for the local bus.

 

If  you are traveling to Jordan more than 3 days and you want to visit Petra obviously, then it is worth it to check www.jordanpass.jo as you would save money and time.
