Question First mistake, leaving TLV during Shabbat

I am sure I am not the only one made that mistake... Going out of (or coming in) TLV during Shabbat is no fun. I have spend hours of reading online but just confuse me more....

Yes, I know during Shabbat there will be no train or bus. My only options is taxi or sherut (some kind of shared taxi).

My international flight leaving TLV on Sat noon. Any advice what's the best planning? Should I book my last night in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv? What's the cheapest way (and how much?) for 2 person to airport?

Actually noon Saturday will be the least busy time of the week at the airport so that part will be easy and make the security lines shorter. About 100-120 shekels to the airport in a taxi from Tel Aviv and around 400 from Jerusalem. Most restaurants in Tel Aviv are open Friday night - less so Jerusalem. Other than that and lack of public transit it's not really that big an issue.

Some said from Jerusalem to TLV, contact Nesher (shared taxi) and cost 67 shekels/person. Anyone with experience/confirm?

Sadly, lack of public transit is exactly the issue I will be facing when picked a flight leaving on Sat noon hour...

Yes you can do the shared taxi from Jersualem for 67 NIS p/p, for comparison though using "Hadar Lod" taxis, a private taxi from Jerusalem is 230 NIS and from Tel Aviv 120 NIS (other taxis will be significantly more expensive)
