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.

Thanks! 5 people and suitcases, is the bus a better option? This thread made taxi seem better, expected cost 350
5 people plus suitcases won't fit in a regular taxi. You're going to need a van which would cost ~375/400
IMO for 5 pax it's not worth taking the bus but it's up to you, it's definitely the cheapest option (16nis pp) but only gets you to the entrance of Jerusalem.
if you're paying 400 it's worth it to take two taxis already @180mis.
 And once you get to the tachaneh take a regular bus.
You can either use Google Maps to know which buses to take or use an app called" move it", should you decide to take the buses.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

I have a great driver, though I don't think he would be the cheapest as the thread states

yes
They take you and drop you anywhere. Sometimes it's excruciatingly long.

The cheapest way is not private and it's the bus beyond that nesher which not private either. The next cheapest is taxi companies,  there is some variation in taxi companies that changes periodically. Soon beh there will be a train which will be the fastest and cheapest...but not private.
Also the thread never claims to deal exclusively with private transportation.

There is no set cheapest one. The cheaper ones get more expensive as they get more popular. The ride should cost between 150-200 for a car and can really depends on how many passengers and suitcases. Assume 250-350.

I contacted a couple of people and they want around $100 for car and $160 for a van.

How do I get one for the price you mention? (200nis/350nis)

I'm really curious who wanted those prices. Even an airport taxi isn't close to that price.
There are private ones that's are even cheaper but bar ilan taxi and Daka 99 should be 180-200 for a car.
I don't have the other numbers on me this moment.
