Your trip to Paris starts at Charles De Gaulle? If you a first-time visitor, you must be wondering what's the best way to get to the city center. Luckily, "the city of lights" has good connections to the airport. Continue reading to find out all about shuttles and private transfers from CDG.
If you are traveling on a budget and are going to the central districts of Paris, close to the Louvre Museum, it will be best to hop on the Roissybus shuttle. It is a reliable, decent option of transportation to the city center. It will be easy for you to find it, as it does stop at all 3 Terminals of the airport. Just follow the signs for ground transportation and Roissybus.
And you don’t have to worry about waiting for too long, as the service is frequent. You can catch a shuttle approximately every 15 – 20 minutes. You will be arriving at Opera Metro Station in the city in about 1 hour. You can easily connect for your onward journey from there.
You will have to pay about 14,00 EUR for a one-way fare. You can purchase the ticket at RATP counters at CDG, or from the driver.

You can also opt for 2 public lines:
You will be paying only about 6,00 EUR for a one-way ticket, which is a great steal. However, the journey will take about 1 hour. Both shuttles are frequent, and you’ll be able to catch one every 15 – 30 minutes during the day.
Ask yourself, how convenient are the shuttles? They are not very expensive, and that's a good thing. But, every other aspect of it cannot even compare with private transportation. For instance, after a long flight, you don’t want to spend a lot of time waiting for a shuttle. Have you got the time to research the timetables and Google Maps? It can get frustrating, especially if you are unfamiliar with the language. But, don’t worry, there is a solution – and it is called a private transfer. It is a type of service custom-tailored to your needs only.
The main advantage of private transportation is door-to-door service, meaning your driver will take you directly to your accommodation. You will not share a ride with anyone, while shuttles tend to get overcrowded. If you have a lot of luggage, or if traveling with children – the stress is inevitable. So, don’t think twice and book your ride with Connecto.
