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.

Probably around ₪30-₪45 each.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

If you have a debit card that doesn't charge a forex fee, there's a ATM right where you come out.

It's right outside the terminal, on the second floor. Ask anyone for directions to the buses.

It's a little hard to find. If your on the arrivals floor you have go up a set of escalators, or elevators to the floor with the shul and rental cars. Go out that door and you will a bus stop (after crossing over outside) in the middle row.
