Transport, Getting There And Getting Around
From the Airport
Within the airport, you should use the CDGVAL – the driverless shuttle rail service linking the three airport terminals, RER and TGV stations and main car parks.
Terminal 2 includes a TGV station linking directly to several French stations from CDG, including Lille, Strasbourg, Dijon, Lyon, Marseille, Montpellier, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Nantes, Poitiers, Rennes, Toulon, as well as services to Brussels in Belgium.
Taxi – and Car hire
Charles de Gaulle Airport is directly connected to Autoroute A1 which connects Paris and Lille. You can take a taxi directly to Paris. It takes about an hour depending on traffic and can cost up to €60.
Taxis can be hailed in the street or at taxi ranks, but there are not as many as such a big city requires. There’s a minimum journey charge of €7, and additional charges for more than one piece of luggage in the boot.
Hiring a car: Paris to be Europe’s most traffic-jammed cities,so stick to using a car for venturing outside the city. Driving with Paris – and, in particular, mastering the Arc de Triomphe, where priorité à droite (priority for vehicles coming in from the right) still holds, is not for the faint-hearted. The main car hire companies have branches at the airport and main train stations.
