There is a daily bus from Petra leaving at about 6.30am. The procedure there is that you ask your hotel to reserve you a place and the bus comes to pick you up. The fare is usually about 3JD but this is a tourist bus, and does not have the right to pick up fares along the way, so if there are fewer than 3 passengers the bus will not run.
Unfortunately there is no way to check ahead of time that this bus to Rum will run on any particular day. This depends, not only on the number of passengers coming from Petra, but on the number of people in Wadi Rum waiting to take the bus on its return trip. Often the driver only decides in the morning when he sees how many passengers he has in total. Sometimes he will go anyway, but will charge a bit extra.
If he decides not to go, you should take the early bus to Aqaba, leaving Petra at 6.20am or there is another one at 7.45am, get down at the Rum Intersection (tell the driver what you want) and try to hitch from there. If you have pre-reserved with a guide, ask one of the drivers to call him and he will probably come to pick you up. He may or may not charge you for this (it is 30 kilometers, or 20 miles. A taxi would charge about 6JD for this distance).
