You can find more economical (although more indirect) options below:
There are two buses that go from Buenos Aires to La Plata
129 - Retiro a La Plata por Autopista (http://www.grupoplaza.com.ar/expreso/retiro-a-la-plata-por-autopista/)
Costera Metropolitana (https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1RM1GeX1jy_m3yD_RMpPYHfZl5OQ&hl=en_US)
Both buses depart from the Retiro Bus Station (Costera Metropolitana departs from inside the terminus, while the 129 departs from the squares at the outside). You can take them there or at any bus stop on the Avenue 9 de Julio. More information about the stops can be seen here.
The approximate cost of the ticket is $50 and the payment is inside the bus itself using the SUBE card. The card costs $25 and you can charge it with the amount of money you need for travelling. The card is registered with the name of a person, but can be usually used to pay the ticket of more than one person. For more information on where the SUBE card can be obtained or charged you can visit www.sube.gob.ar/MapasSUBE.aspx. Note that there is no point to obtain the SUBE card in Aeroparque or nearby, but you can obtain it in Retiro or in many points in the central part of the city.
