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:

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 ₪.

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.

You need to switch once within the airport area to get to the terminal
If you leave directly from the tachana in Jerusalem, and have one suitcase and one carryon per person, is it the end of the world to take egged? Or are you better off waiting for nesher to pick you up and take you to all the stops to pick up all their passengers?

the total cost of this egged trip is 29.5 shekel, 24 for first segment and 5.5 for 2nd (airport area to actual terminal door). So bus to modiin and train is a bit cheaper (the train drops off right outside terminal 3, underneath the roadway is a train station, no hassles there). Bus also picks up/ drops off by bar ilan area (golda meir and ezras torah)

Which places exactly can you pick up this bus to modiin? Is it a egged bus, what the bus number?

Thanks but I don't like driving to airport. Hate dealing with retuning the car and everything before a flight.

It actually includes the AP fee, but regardless I believe it's a good rate considering that it's a 1 day rental. CMIIW.
