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 ₪.

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.

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

I think the closest option would be the Rashbam minyan factory in מקור ברוך neighborhood, about a 7-10 min walk towards Geula.
Thanks.  Actually Davening now at CP!

Put it on Tuesday night. So now the question is, will the vouchers on my card still work?

Can you let us know if it works!
Was thinking of doing that but lost my Rav Kav.... I got the money back but they did not put the vouchers back on...

Still susposed to be free; who said they were charging at the station?

https://www.rail.co.il/en/pages/updates/jerusalem-naovn-opening.aspx
Jerusalem to the national railway track grid and opening up the Yitzchak Navon Train Station in Jerusalem From Tuesday, 25.9.18.

As of the inauguration date of the line and for a 90 day period thereafter.

That means the free period ends December 25.
Can anyone please confirm its still free?

Theoretically they wont stop you, but there is a lot of walking and it might be hard to do it; check out my trip report ( https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=24190.msg1992263;topicseen#msg1992263) to see if its doable for you to shlep them.

I did it, I'd say from JLM should be a lot easier.
