Charles de Gaulle Airport to Paris by Train - RER

Lately, many crew members are seeking information on how to best travel from Paris's Charles de Gaulle airport to the layover hotel with their family members. This, since the crew pick-up bus no longer is permitted to swing back to the terminal for additional pick-up's.

So, what can you do? You can take the RER from Charles de Gaulle to the center of Paris. It's fast and it's relatively cheap. How to do it? Read on, it's really pretty simple.

electric ramps - photo enclosed of doors.

get a timetable , some of these trains are direct to (and from) gare du nord (downtown Paris) and thus are faster and you don't get as much annoyed by all sorts of pan handlers...Beatrice (ex CDGSW)
