The best way to get to Wadi Rum?

Aqaba is only about 40 minutes away by car.




From Aqaba to Wadi Rum

Public minibus

Public minibuses run daily between Aqaba and Wadi Rum but, since their main purpose is to shuttle teachers from Aqaba to the school in Rum village and to serve the locals, the schedule is accomodating them rather than the tourists.

So all the departure time here are approximate and to be confirmed. If you can, walk up to the bus station in Aqaba the day before you want to travel and ask the drivers. Especially if you plan to travel on a Friday.

The buses leave from near the Aqaba Police station at 6.30h, 11.00h, 13.00h and 15.00h - or when they are full - and return from Wadi Rum cca. one hour later.

AMMAN AIRPORT TRANSFER

Amman Airport Private Arrival/Departure Transfer

Reviewed by Donald G, May 2011:

"Driver and vehicle were very acceptable - and in light of the driving/vehicle conditions in Amman this was most welcome. The service is on the expensive side when compared with the local taxi service but, in my opinion, most worthwhile. The driver was welcoming and very helpful. Luggage handling was completely handled at both ends of the trip in a very professional manner. I would definitely use this service again."
