Not sure about the Israel side. From Jordan side, no bus. You can take a taxi to the site, but you will have to ask your taxi to wait for you. Due to tight security around the area, you don't see many taxis to hail there.

Hi there, you can't go down, only from viewing platform and you can not separate from the group and local guide as you are right on border between Jordan and Israel.Jordanian soldiers are there all the time. However you will be given like 10 minutes if you want to like " baptize " yourself in Jordan river? That's about 5 min walk from original site.
