Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport - RER Trains

From: Paris CDG Airport Transportation

Trains (RER)

The RER is a regional train network with stops at major railroad stations and Métro hubs in Paris.

From the RER platforms at Charles de Gaulle Airport, you can reach the Gare du Nord, Châtelet-Les Halles, Saint-Michel, Luxembourg, and other stations of RER Line B.

Connections to the Métro network and RER Line C (which runs along the left bank of the Seine) make it easy to get within 500 meters of any hotel in Paris, although you may want to take a taxi or shuttle instead of the Métro if you're burdened with luggage and arriving in the city center at rush hour.

photoHow to ride the RER: After you've retrieved your bags and gone through customs, look for a "Gare" sign with a train symbol.

CDG has two RER stations: one for Terminals 1 and 3, and the other at Terminal 2. The terminals are connected by a free CDGVAL shuttle train.

Notes:

Once you have your ticket, follow the signs to the platforms. When you've descended the escalator, check the electronic signboard for train departure times and platform numbers. Trains normally depart every 10 to 20 minutes between 5 a.m. and midnight.
