    Joseph, fixed rate taxis from the airport to Petra cost around 70-80 JD for the 2 1/2 hour trip, and they are used to traveling anywhere in the country.
    The alternative is to go to Amman and then by bus to Petra which will be a lot cheaper but time consuming. It may be worthwhile asking fellow passengers on the plane if they are going to Petra and share the taxi expense.

    Joseph , the shuttle bus will take around an hour to get to Amman, but the regular Jett bus leaves 6.30 am from Amman to Petra and takes around 4 hours. There are also other bus companies that will go to Petra and their time table is erratic as they normally don't leave until they are full.

    I believe that there is a counter and the rate is fixed for the trip, but i have not been there for a while.
