Transport from Quito to Cuenca - help?

Hi, All, My partner and I are currently in Quito and wanting to head to Cuenca on August 4th or 5th. We have found a lot of mixed information about the options for getting from one city to the other.

We have taken buses in other parts of Latin America, but it sounds like this particular bus ride can be particularly unsafe (for our belongings) and possibly without bathroom breaks?

The cheapest flight we can find would be about $160 for both of us, and ... is there something going on with the Cuenca airport right now that makes flying into it undesirable?

I have seen in various forums and posts that there are shared shuttle services, but we have absolutely not been able to find any of them online so we could actually book something.

Can anyone give me information on an actual shuttle service that goes between Quito and Cuenca for less than $160 for two people?

Thank you so much for your help. We will be living and working in Cuenca through next June, and we're excited to connect with the community.
