Damascus Transportation: 46 reviews and 40 photos


Buses to Aleppo leaves from Karajat Harasta in Damascus. To go to Harasta you can take a microbus from Sharia Soukri al-Quwatli for 5 SP. It is the microbus with green signs that are going to Harasta.
From Harasta buses are leaving for Aleppo every hour. The bus company I travelled with had buses leaving every hour from 6.00 to 20.00. The bus ride between Damascus and Aleppo took 4,5 hours and was 125 SP. On the bus water is served (and a candy).
In Aleppo the bus did not stop at Karajat Hanano (Ibrahim Hanano) as it used to do, but futher away from the centre, close to the stadion. The first taxidriver wanted to have 200 SP. I said 25 SP (chamsa wa ashrin) which is the right tax for taxises within Aleppo. I found a driver who agreed to take me for 25 SP but he changed his mind in the car. When I wanted to go out of the car he changed to 25 SP again.
