How do we take the Noctilien night bus to Orly airport?

By | February 3, 2020 | in

Hi Ben, thank you for the immensely helpful information on transportation in Paris.
When leaving France, we need to be at Orly airport by 4:30am on a Monday. According to google maps, I would need to take the N15 and the N22. Do we need tickets for each Noctilien bus? Would you recommend the T+ tickets?

Hi there,
You'll need 3 tickets in total since you'll be crossing 3 zones (into zone 4).  A single ticket is good for a single zone traversal.  If I'm guessing your connection correctly you're taking N15 within Zone 1/2 and N22 from zone 2/3/4 so use one ticket for N15 and two tickets for N22 (you'll literally validate two Paris Ticket t+ Metro/Bus tickets inside the N22 bus ticket reader, one after another).  You won't need Noctilien specific tickets for N15 / N22.  You would use regular Ticket t+.  It's recommended to buy those ahead of time.  The buses sell tickets onboard for slightly more cost.
I hope this answers your question.  And thanks for the kind words about the site.
