Amman to Sheikh Hussein northern crossing and into Israel

Hello, what is the best way to get to the Sheikh Hussein northern crossing from Amman (e.g., bus, taxi)? Costs? Also, once in Israel, what is the best way to get to Nazareth or Tiberias? Thank you.

From Amman Mujamaa Shamali at Tabarbor take shared taxi cost around $ 10 each taxi moves when fills up.

On Israeli I think better post on Israel forum

To get from Beit She'an to Tiberias or Nazareth:

1) The costy way - take a taxi from the Israeli side of the border all the way to your destination

2) the economical way - take a taxi from the Israeli side of the border to Beit She'an bus terminal. From the bus terminal take the bus to Tiberias or in case of Nazareth, take the bus to Afula central bus station and there switch to ta bus to Nazareth.

Just did this over the weekend.

Amman to the crossing is 25JD

20jd pp exit fee

5jd pp for the bus ride to cross the bridge. This is the only way to cross.

From the Israel side to Damascus gate at the old city is 42nis by a sherut/shared van or up to 150nis by private taxi.

Piece of cake.
