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.

Are there any private taxis late at night from TLV airport to Jerusalem for under 200NIS? Recommendations? It'd be for 2 people plus luggage (1 large, 1 handheld). Probably around 9-10pm on a Monday night. Trying to decide between shared sheirut or taxi depending on price.

I know of a reliable car service that i have used myself in the past, their rate from Jerusalem to TLV during the day for 1 passenger is 165, i believe they would drive the opposite direction also for the same rate so in your case it probably would be around 200 nis, their number is 035511110 (hebrew).

Definately the train, especially during rush hour.  We only take the bus during the hours that the train is not running..

FYI: all trains from 6:33-9:03 have a daily minyan for shachris at the second car to the back. (This is great if you are heading to the airport).
The 8:03 has a Seder Torah as well.
There are also some trains in the opposite direction with mincha/maariv depending on the season/times, same location. (There is a WhatsApp group if anyone is interested)

Not allowing passengers arriving from overseas in trains just airport workers and personal.

Hurray  ;D They did it.
https://en.globes.co.il/en/article-jerusalem-tel-aviv-fastlink-electrification-completed-1001324759

Israel Railways has announced that it has completed electrification of the line between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv Savidor Central.

When trains resume running, the line between Tel Aviv Savidor Central and Jerusalem will be fully operational.

Just waiting on a time timetable for how the long the trip will take... and how much it will cost  :o
