FAQs

How do we get to the Wadi Rum by public transport?
From Aqaba:

The bus from Aqaba to Wadi Rum leaves the bus station in Aqaba at approx 1.00 pm, but you should be there for 12.00 pm to be sure to get a seat as it is usually full each day. This bus will come all the way to Rum Village. Price: 3  JD p.p. (This bus does not run on Fridays).

A taxi for four people maximum costs 20 JD
From Petra:

A minibus (7JD) departs from Petra at 630am on a daily basis, arriving in the Wadi Rum around 830am. You can ask your guesthouse to book places for you on the bus, which will pick you up directly. We will then meet you at the drop-off point in the Wadi Rum to take you to the campgrounds by four wheel drive.

From Amman:

There are no direct buses from Amman to Wadi Rum, but you can take the JETT bus to Petra from Amman which departs at 630am daily and then take the minibus from Petra the next day.
