How to get from BDL to West Haven?

Is there any reasonable way to get from BDL to West Haven? I've looked for a shuttle and found nothing. Don't want to pay $160 for a private car. Don't want to rent a car as I will not be returning to BDL.

Google Maps has a few suggestions on public transport. Driving is about an hour. Their combos (2 transfers) takes about 3 hours.

You could also take the Hartford Flyer from the airport to Hartford and catch the Hartford Line bus to New Haven, and take a cab/uber from there

I'm running into problems with timing - my flight arrives at 6:44 pm. Can't imagine getting out of the airport before 7:45pm (I will have one checked bag). Looked at renting a car but the one-way drop-off fees are ridiculous.

A quick glance at UBER shows the standard rate (UberX) as $65 today (4pm on a weekday). Cannot imagine it would be any more well after the evening rush hour.
