Shared Taxi versus Bus from Bridge to Old City

Shared Taxi versus Bus from Bridge to Old City

Curious about a few things:

1. How much does a shared taxi ride cost from the bridge (Amman via Allenby) to the Old City?

2. How do I tell if the taxi is a shared taxi versus a private taxi?

3. What are the time savings versus using the bus at 40NIS (right?)?

4. If I use the bus how do I pay for them as I understand there are no ATM's at the border crossing? I assume for the taxi I can either negotiate a USD price or have them stop at the first ATM.

The Shared Taxi (Sherut) is considerable much less expensive and you can pay in forgeign currency from the border crossing. It is a large van painted yellow. A taxi is a car that says taxi on it. The bus is the least expensive way to go but the sherut is shorter time wise as it goes directly to Damascus Gate. Not sure about the pricing.
