Driving to Jordan
Jordan has road borders with Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia, and is also linked by car ferry to Egypt. The JETT bus company in Amman (www.jett.com.jo) runs scheduled buses to and from Cairo, Damascus, Baghdad, Riyadh, Jeddah, Madina, Makkah and other cities, along with local partners in each destination.
The Trust bus company (tel: (06) 581 3427) runs buses between Amman and Nazareth in Israel, sometimes also serving Tel Aviv. To reach Amman from Jerusalem by public transport requires a complicated sequence of taxis and buses: you could pay extra for VIP service door-to-door through firms such as Amman2Jerusalem (tel: (07) 9952 0066; www.amman2jerusalem.com).
