RER B Express Trains

Note that there are “express” RER B trains departing CDG Airport towards Paris that will not make any stops between CDG and Paris Gare du Nord train station. These trains are designated as such through their four letter “mission” code that’s visible on the front of the trains and on the overhead screens on train platforms which show stations served. CDG express trains to Paris often start with the mission code letter “K” or “J” (although other codes exist). In the example shown below, KARI mission code trains are express trains to Paris from CDG airport.

RER B Express train trains from CDG to Paris

These “express” RER B trains aren’t always available (they usually only run during peak hours) and express trains aren’t necessarily much faster than other RER B trains. i.e. You won’t get into Paris sooner by skipping a departing regular service RER B and waiting for the next “express” RER B, but there will be no stops in between. With no stops in between CDG and Paris, express RER B trains have some noticeable benefits:

  1. less passengers, since there are no passengers boarding between CDG and Paris Gare du Nord, meaning more space for luggage and seating
  2. more safety, as thieves cannot strike while you’re stopping at one of the in-between stations, getting on, grabbing a bag, and quickly departing while the train departs the station
  3. easier to exit the train when arriving at Gare du Nord, since most passengers on express RER B trains just arrived into France and will depart at either Gare du Nord or Chatelet Les Halles and transfer elsewhere. Local passenger traffic tends to flow in & out of trains more randomly at in between stations

To buy train tickets, use the official ticket reseller for your country of residence:


How to Search for Train Schedules/Timetables

Start by choosing a station or Gare as your departure city or point.

Then click on the link “Recherche d’horaires” (“Search Schedules”) on the left column of links.

You’ll be presented with a search page with departure point pre-filled and the date of travel set to today.

Enter a city after the “à“.  You should see a list of stations appear below the text box after typing in the city name.  Select your destination station from this list.  Then set your travel date and time of departure.  Finally, click Recherche (“Search”). (If you’re unsure of which destination station you should choose, enter just the city destination and the search tool will automatically select the largest station for the city).

A maximum of 3 train itineraries will be returned with the option of seeing details about each itinerary.

The results are ordered chronologically with the number of connections required (“changements”), and total travel time (“durée”).

Clicking the blue magnifying glass button beside an itinerary will show details of that trip basically each train or connection required.

Each connection will be shown with the type of train or other form of transport (as not all connections are by train, some are by foot or bus):

  • BAN – Banlieue (“Suburban”) train either RER or Transilien train,
  • Ter – Ter/Transilien commuter train,
  • TGV – “Train à Grande Vitesse” / High-speed trains,
  • “Autre mode de transport” – Walking (to make transfers between trains)
  • CAR – Autocar (“bus”)

You can search different starting stations by simply changing the text within the text box beside “Voyage de” (“Trip from”). As you type the name of a city, the site will offer you suggestions of stations which show up automatically below the text box.  This helps prevent spelling mistakes and gives you choices of which stations you can select. For example, typing in “Paris” in the first text box will return a multitude of results whereupon you can use your keyboard’s down arrow to move down the list and press Enter to select the station you wish to depart from.

Buying Train Tickets

Remember that Gares-en-Mouvement is for finding train schedules, not buying train tickets.  For buying train tickets in France, here are the official resellers for your country:

When purchasing tickets, these sites will ask you where you want your tickets delivered.  If your country is different than the region the website is covering, you’ll be redirected to the official reseller for your country of residence and you’ll have to start the ticket search process again.
