Paris Travel Planner   Airport Bus CDG - Paris: Le-Bus Direct
Airport buses (Le-Bus Direct, formerly Air France Bus) offer convenient service from Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport's Terminal 2 to central Paris, but there are cheaper, faster and more comfortable alternatives, especially for travel parties of 3 or more.

Paris Girls Secret Society, the new novel by Tom Brosnahan



Airport buses make sense for single travelers and couples, but for 3+ travelers, consider taxi and transfer services also. Four airport bus tickets can equal the cost of a private taxi or transfer. More...

Le-Bus Direct (formerly Air France Bus [Les Cars Air France]) runs from Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport to central Paris every day of the week, serving Terminal 1, Gate 32; and Terminals 2A, 2B, 2C, 2D, 2E, and 2F.

These buses do not stop at Terminal 3 which you may reach via the CDGVal. More...

(If you are arriving or departing from Terminal 3, it's more convenient [and cheaper!] to take the RoissyBus or Bus 350, and faster and cheaper to take the RER B suburban train. More...)

If you flew Economy Class to Charles de Gaulle Airport, you'll feel right at home on Le Bus Direct: the seats give you very little legroom even though the Le Bus Direct costs more than the RoissyBus.

You can buy your tickets right from the driver on the bus for cash euros, or online (for which you receive a small discount). If you buy online you must print your ticket in advance, or have it on your smartphone, then show it to the driver when you board the bus.
