You have a number of options for reaching the city from Charles de Gaulle Airport. The cheapest is the RER train, which has several stops in central Paris and connects with the Métro system. This is a good choice when you're traveling with light luggage. If you're loaded with bags, we'd suggest an airport bus or--for direct transportation at a higher fare--an airport shuttle or taxi. For information on each type of ground transportation, go from page to page in this article or use the navigation table below.
