After touring in Jordan, my guide will let me off on the Jordan side of the Beit She’an / Sheik Hussein – Northern border crossing (between Tiberias and Jerash). Is there a taxi stand on the Israel side of the border that has taxis waiting for hire during daylight hours? If not, how can I get a taxi there to take me to Tiberias?

The official page for the Nehar Yarden (Jordan River) crossing, as the Israelis call it, says that your best option is taxi, and like any other Middle East border crossing, I'd expect a few to be hanging around. You/somebody can probably call you a cab in a pinch though.

Bus 16 also runs between Beit Shean and the border (stop #8), but there are only a few services per day, and (as usual in Israel) none on Shabbat.

  • If there are no taxis hanging around, is there a local taxi company that I could call? If so, how long might it take for that local company to provide a taxi? (I will be traveling with some young children and would like to be careful about arrangements.)

    It's <10 km to Beit Shean, so an available taxi should be there in minutes. Google for a local company, or use Israel's version of Uber, GetTaxi. Mar 4, 2015 at 11:20
  • Is there connectivity at the border crossing?

    We took bus #16 yesterday, it doesn't go to the border crossing, but turns about 2km before and yes there are only a few a day. I didn't notice any taxis but I also didn't look for them. Jan 20, 2020 at 19:49
