Get­ting around

Timeless Travels Magazine - - JORDAN -

Jordan has an ex­cel­lent trans­port in­fra­struc­ture with buses run­ning be­tween all ma­jor towns. Within cities, it is worth tak­ing taxis as they are not ex­pen­sive. White painted ‘ser­vice taxis’ ride fixed routes and are shared. Pri­vate taxis are yel­low, and have me­ters, but these are not al­ways used at night. It is there­fore rec­om­mended to agree the cost be­fore­hand. It is con­sid­ered ap­pro­pri­ate for a woman to sit in the back of a taxi. Tip­ping isn’t com­pul­sory, but it is cus­tom­ary to add 50 pi­asters (less than 50p) to the price of the me­ter.
