Paris Airport Shuttle

Paris Airport Shuttle services are available between the city center and both Charles de Gaulle and Orly. Reservations can be made days, weeks or months in advance, but they must generally be made at least 48 hours in advance. When arriving at the airport you must call a special toll free number (before picking up your baggage) and you will be given a meeting point at your terminal. More...

Once the shuttle arrives it will generally complete its circuit of the terminals to pick up other passengers (as the bus does) then it will drop you off at your final destination in Paris. For departures you will be given a pickup time that will guarantee your arrival at the airport the required amount of time before your departure.

Price (inside of Paris city limits) : 22.50€/person for 1 person, 18€/person for 2, 17€/person for 3 or more.

Verdict: The Paris airport shuttle is probably the best value for the money for travellers who want convenience for an economical price when choosing a Paris airport transfer. The price is approximately equal to the bus + taxi combination, but once aboard the shuttle no additional waiting and transfers are required (as is the case with the bus or metro). Additional advantages include advance reservation, door to door service, an English speaking driver, a fixed price as well as 24 hour service. Drawbacks include the waiting time for the shuttle upon arrival at the airport (it could be more than the 15 min wait for the bus) and the additional time required to drop off / pick up other passengers. Travelers going to and from the suburbs will need to find other Paris airport transportation, as the airport shuttle only serves points inside the city limits.
