RATP, the Paris regional transport
authority, operates this coach between CDG Terminals 1, 2, and 3 and the rue
Scribe by the American Express office and the Opéra Garnier. (Take the RoissyBus
if you're staying at one of the many hotels in the Opéra district.)
Buses run every 15 minutes from early morning until mid-evening
and at 20- to 30-minute intervals after that. The one-way fare is €10,00. (RATP's
1- to 5-zone Paris Visite pass is also
valid on Roissybus, but the cheaper Paris Visite pass for Zones 1-3 only does
not cover airport transportation.)
Travel time is nominally 45 minutes but can take up to twice
that long during rush hour. Wave down the bus at the terminal (see the airport's
Buses page) and pay the driver upon boarding.

the airport's Roisspôle RER train station. To ride them, you'll need three
