To and from the Airport

 

Sherut - shared, licensed taxi at a fixed price

One of the most affordable, convenient and popular ways is to take a "sherut" (shared taxi) that leaves from just outside the Arrivals Hall at Ben-Gurion Airport and will deliver you directly to your destination in Jerusalem. There is also a similar service to Haifa and the north of Israel (Akko and Nahariya). Many taxi drivers wait for the sherut taxi to be full before setting off, so you need to factor that into your journey time.

You can also order one to take you from Jerusalem to the airport, and need to book 24 hours in advance (they will tell you to call back if you try more than 24 hours in advance). However, if your flight is on Saturday night or Sunday, then make sure to book 48 hours in advance.

A single journey should cost you 62 NIS (US$ equivalent accepted). Sheruts run 24/7.
