Paris Airport Shuttle: Le Bus Direct

By | August 10, 2016 | in Uncategorized

Paris Airport Shuttles are now known as “Le Bus Direct”

Instead of taking the RER or train heading into Paris, there is a Paris airport shuttle from Charles de Gaulle or Orly Airport to the heart of Paris; Le Bus Direct offers a shuttle service for airport travelers with central destinations such as Gare Montparnasse, Gare de Lyon, Invalides metro station and Charles de Gaulle Etoile metro station. Considering that this option is substantially cheaper than hiring a taxi (if traveling alone or with one other person), it’s a good price and considerably less stress.


(Roissy) Charles De Gaulle Airport

There are four pickup points (Terminal 1, Terminal 2A/2C, Terminal 2B/2D, Terminal 2E/2F) for the three different shuttles. If you’re flight arrives in Terminal 3, take the free CDGVAL shuttle to Terminal 2. Lines 2 and 4 will take you into the city of Paris while line 1 will connect you to the Orly airport.

Locations of Air France Shuttle:

  • Terminal 1: exit 34, arrival level
  • Terminal 2: Dependent on what subsection you are located, there are locations at :
  1. exit C2 (for Terminal 2A/2C)
  2. exit B1 (for Terminal 2B/2D)
