From Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) via Public Transportation

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 instead of the Métro if you're burdened with luggage and arriving in the city center at rush hour.

How 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.) At the RER station, you can buy tickets in two ways:

  • In the ticket office, where the clerks accept payment by cash or credit card.
  • From an "Île de France" ticket vending machine, which may or may not be compatible with foreign credit cards. (You'll have a better chance of success if you're using a European "smart" credit card with an embedded chip.)

Once you have your ticket, follow the Paris par Train 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.

From Orly Airport via Public Transportation

Automated Orlyval shuttle trains connect Orly Airport's Sud (south) and Ouest (west) terminals to the Antony station of the RER B line, where you must transfer to an RER train into the heart of Paris. A ticket for the entire journey costs €9,05. The ticket is valid on the Orlyval train, the RER, and the Métro.

Buy your ticket at the RATP's Orlyval/Orlybus booth in the terminal, then go up the escalator to the elevated train station. Keep the ticket with you throughout the journey. (You'll need it for the turnstiles at Antony and to exit the RER.)

When traveling to Orly from Paris on the RER, board a train with the final destination of Saint-Rémy-lès-Chevreuse and transfer to the Orlyval train at the Antony station.

Notes:
  • Orlyval trains depart every few minutes from 8 a.m. until 11 p.m., and total travel time to central Paris is 30-35 minutes.
  • The 1- to 5-zone Paris Visite card is valid on Orlyval and the RER.
  • For your return trip, you can buy tickets all the way to Orly at any RER or Métro station. If the automated machines don't work (as they often don't), say "Orly avec Orlyval" to the ticket clerk.
