Le Bus Direct

Buses of Le Bus Direct Paris Aéroport (formerly Cars Air France) connect Terminals 1 and 2 with destinations on the Right and Left Bank:

  • Line 2 goes to Porte Maillot (near the Palais de Congrèss de Paris),  Étoile Champs-Élysées, Trocadero, and the Eiffel Tower. Buses normally run every 30 minutes from early morning to 11 p.m.  Average trip time: 60 minutes for the entire route.

  • Line 4 serves the Gare de Lyon and the Gare Montparnasse. Coaches normally depart every 30 minutes from early morning until 10:00 p.m. Average trip time: about 50 minutes for the entire route.

  • Le Bus Direct also has a Line 3 bus that runs between Charles de Gaulle and Orly Airports at 20- to 30-minute intervals, with an average travel time of 7o to 80 minutes.

  • Your luggage will be stored for you during the trip.

  • Buy your ticket online, at the Le Bus Direct counter in the airport terminal, or from the bus driver.

RoissyBus

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 to 20 minutes, with an average travel time of 75 minutes. The one-way fare is €12,--.

Buy your ticket from an RATP vending machine (or ticket booth, if available) and validate your ticket when you board the bus. If you're dashing to the bus at the last minute, you can pay the driver.

Note:

  • RATP's 1- to 5-zone Paris Visite pass is valid on Roissybus, but the cheaper Paris Visite pass for Zones 1-3 only does not cover airport transportation.

Travel time is nominally 60 to 75 minutes but can be shorter or longer, depending on traffic.

For up-to-date information, see the the RATP's RoissyBus page.

RATP Buses 350 and 351

Bus 350 is a public-transit bus that links CDG with the Gare de l'Est in Paris.

Bus  351 runs between CDG and Nation in Paris.

Both buses start and finish their routes at the airport's Roisspôle RER train station. To ride them, you'll need three standard T+ paper Métro/bus tickets or a valid pass such as the 1- to 5-zone Paris Visite card.
