To Wadi Rum Village
Transportation to Wadi Rum Village is very easy. Once you have arrived at the entrance to the protected area, you will be required to pay a 5 JOD charge for entrance, unless you have a Jordan Pass. Then you will spend roughly 5 more minutes driving to the Visitors Centre in Wadi Rum Village. I will meet you at the Visitors Centre and we will start the trip of a lifetime 🙂
Here is some transportation information from the major cities in Jordan:
Amman to Wadi Rum (4-5 hours)
No bus goes directly to/from Amman, but regular buses head towards Aqaba or Ma’an. Get on a bus at the Southern bus station (Mojamaa Janoobi station/Wehdat Station). The cost will be around 6JOD and the driver will wait until the bus is full before it leaves. (FYI Smoking is still allowed on this bus). It makes frequent stops, and takes 4-5h to the Wadi Rum entrace, with a stop of aprox. 20 min at a small shop/restaurant. Service taxis will also stop here for you and are generally quicker than the buses (as a reminder service taxes are not private taxis and will be picking up other passengers and perhaps making detours as needed for passengers. Service taxis should cost JOD15-25 per person.
Petra to Wadi Rum (2 hours)
There is currently one bus per day from Wadi Musa (Petra) that leaves at 06:30 and costs JOD7. The trip generally takes 2 hours and tickets should be booked through your hotel at Petra, it will then collect you from your hotel directly in the morning. The bus stops at the Visitor’s Center Rum Village and returns to Wadi Musa for visitors travelling on to Petra (departure at 08:00 or 09:00).
Taxis to and from Petra cost JOD25-35. Request your taxi guy to take to Wadi Rum visitors centre and he should help you in connecting to the camp where you’ve made your booking (provide them with my phone number).
Aqaba to Wadi Rum (1 hour)
There at least one direct bus from Aqaba to the Wadi Rum Visitor’s Centre and the Wadi Rum Village per day. It is very possible that these buses are not running on Fridays (go to the Bus Station and ask the drivers the day before). These buses leave 2-3 times per day during the high season (Spring and Autumn).
A private taxi from Aqaba will cost JOD15-25 depending on where you are in the city and will drop you off at the Visitor’s Centre.
