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.

No idea when they will expire or of they'll last after the free ride program stops.

My brother did 8 and then it didn't let him anymore trips on.
I'm not who you think I am.

Just took the train from TLV to Jerusalem on Thursday.

Extremely easy and quick. Just go outside and downstairs to the train. Runs aprox every 30 min.

23 min later you're in Jerusalem just like others have said.

Bought ticket in TLV for 17 NIS.

Thanks everyone here for the help. Highly recommended.
