JETT and Hijazi operate bus services between major cities such as Amman and Aqaba, as well as to neighbouring regions. Minibuses and shared taxis may cover the same routes as the bus companies, as well as offering connections between smaller towns and villages. Shared taxis usually leave only after all seats are filled, so passengers may have to wait a while before departing. Metered taxis are available in most cities, and can be recognised by their bright yellow livery. Some drivers may not use their meters so it is essential to settle on a price before getting into the car.
