Daka 99: 170-200 ₪ 
Derech Eretz : Usually same as Daka 99
Shmuel Lieberman:
Raanan: Private driver. Usually beats Hadaka 99's price if he's available to drive then.


Nesher: 64 ₪.  They go at the top of every hour.  Must reserve 12-24 hours in advance.
Menashe Sofer (Frum Service): A few NIS more than Nesher.
Hasaah: 450 ₪ for huge van (just did with 2 parents, 3 kids, 10 bags) Shouldn't be more than 350 (If need a guy, you can PM moish)

Bus:
Option A:
1. Take Egged 947 / 950 from Central Bus Station to Tzomet El-Al.  Busses run Approximately every 20-30 min. from 6 AM to 10 PM. Takes ~40 min. Price: 25 ₪. 
2. Transfer to local bus 5 / 5A / 13 to Terminal 3. Every 20-30 min. 5:30 AM - 9:10 PM.  Price unknown. 
Option B:
Bus 485 runs approximately 5 minutes after the hour on the hour around the clock from the Jerusalem Central Bus Station (stop is in front of Mercantile Bank) to Terminal 1 and 3, and from Terminal 1 and 3 to the Jerusalem Central Bus Station. Price: ₪16.

Train רכבת:

Starting from September 2018 there is a direct train line between the airport and Jerusalem's central bus station which is at the main entrance to the city.
Train runs every half hour and cost 17 shekel per ride. I think there is a discount if you buy round trip.

To get to the train: Leave the terminal through exit 01 and it is directly on your right. You can buy a ticket from the automatic machines outside the station entrance.
Please note that the train only runs during the day and not at night. Check the Israeli rail  website in advance if you are not sure.

Israel Railway English site.

Walk: 0 NIS Takes about 13 hous and 47 minutes give or take a few depending where you start.

+1/2
-1/2
once you are 2+ people a cab is maybe a few extra shek,and you go strait to your destination as opposed to sometimes an extra hour,
i have heard of 150 to 250 do some research and you can save time and money, i like Barelan taxi.

I didn't know the exact Nesher price so I went L'chumra (notice I wrote aprox).

Also as mentioned there are taxis for 150 shekel or less such as Daka 99.

Another option is a car rental for $25 from thrifty but that would entail a 5 min shuttle and you would have to pay gas.

Any hybrids in IL?  The gas always seems to cost more than the rental :(

Yes. But all included TLV - J'lem would still be cheaper with the smallest car.

IIRC they have diesel/solar cars available which gets more km for the gallon

It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.
