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)

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.

Sometimes they send drivers that aren't officially from them and they try to get more money. (they claim so many suitcases, helped you shlep, waited for you 3 mins,...)

I took them around ten times with no issues. One time they sent the guy to the wrong address, but everything worked out. I think the PEBKAC.

best and cheapest way is either to walk out of arrivals slowly and hope to be approached by frum guy that takes people (available mostly before bein hazmanim) or to take elevator up to departures entrance and BARGIN with an arriving taxi that just dropped someone off. they are absolutely forbidden to take fares from the airport and so will agree to almost any price bcuz there alternative is to go back empty. if you are doing this do not pay more then 150 for cab TOPS.

trust me on this I have a lot of experience

I've NEVER been approached by any frum guy in around twenty trips. The cab idea makes sense though!
