Ground Transportation


Taxis’ are inexpensive and often the most convenient form of transportation in Jordan. The white-painted "service taxis" ride are a shared service and usually have fixed routes. Private yellow taxis’ are the most common, and can and are easily accessible from outside larger hotels, or hailed in the street. Taxis have metres, but these are not always used after 11pm, so it is advisable to agree on the cost beforehand. Taxi drivers are friendly, know the city well, and usually speak English. It is considered appropriate for a woman to sit in the back of the taxi. Tipping isn't compulsory, but change is often limited so don’t be surprised if you’re shorted about 200 fils (20 piasters).

Pro-Tip: If drivers try to quote you a price before riding, ask them for the “Addad”, this should save you a few dinars. 

Bonus Pro-Tip: Refrain from slamming the drivers’ door shut.
