From Damascus, bus station Baramka, Beirut can be reached by taking a share taxi for 5 persons, which in March 2007 costs 700 Syrian Pounds per person (which is a bit more than 13 US dollars). Depending how long you are prepared to wait for other passengers to show up, you may want to pay extra (700 per seat). If you pay 3500 Syrian Pounds (about 67 US dollars) you have the whole taxi for yourself and you can leave at once. The other way around is the same price. A share taxi per person from Damascus to Amman, Jordan, is 600 Syrian Pounds (about 11,5 US dollars), same price the more..
