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.

The article mentions how they want to cut down the train to once per hour. However the schedule still shows the same every half hour.

It's not a specific article, it's all the articles about the train, I wouldn't call Israeli media the most reliable thing that ever happened...
In any event if you look at the first article it says:
"רכבת ישראל הודיעה הבוקר (ג') כי בשל "תקלה באחת הרכבות בקו המהיר"
Stating one of the trains the implication being there are multiple trains.

Coming Soon: Jerusalem - Tel Aviv Fast Train To Run 24 Hours A Day: https://tinyurl.com/ycblfmgx


Now I'm confused. Are they shortening it to one per hour or they are making night hours also?
Maybe at night one per hour but they are twice a half hour during the day?

Your second link is unrelated it's about a new road that was opened (437).
Re the train, it's not really to tel aviv it's to the airport and they are expanding hours but still have issues. Meaning the schedule will have now longer hours which will also be subject to the malfunctioning of less hours...

OK, my flight is scheduled to land at 3:35 AM. what are the chances i have an option besides
a) a one way rental
b) a taxi

both of which cost a lot more than i want to spend on it.
I have a similar request. 
Landing at 2:35 AM on May 21
Alone only one suitcase.
No trains until 8:30 and don't want to spend the $200 on a cab.
Hope I'll find someone to split at that hour.

I saw rumors about the train starting to run 24 hours, on the hour in  middle of the night, by the time you come they may start that.

Thanks. I checked that date on their website, and as of today it shows 830 first train.... I do hope it changes.
