Paris Travel Planner   Orly Airport Ground Transport Paris
Airport trams, trains, airport buses and taxis carry you between Orly Airport and central Paris quickly, easily, and at moderate cost.




Airport Buses

Airport buses make the most value-for-money sense for single travelers and perhaps some couples. If your travel party is three or more people, other options such as private transfers and taxis offer greater comfort and speed, and better value for money, as three or four bus fares may approach the cost of traveling by private car and driver.

Le-Bus Direct airport bus

Le-Bus Direct, formerly Les Cars Air France (Air France airport buses) shuttle between Orly Airport, central Paris, and Charles de Gaulle Airport every 30 minutes, every day—but watch out for traffic. More...


Operated by RATP, Paris's city bus company, the OrlyBus is a good alternative to Le Bus Direct. More...


The safest and best way to go by taxi is to book your taxi in advance (for up to three passengers). You'll know the price, and where to meet your driver, in advance, and you'll go straight to your hotel. More...

Whatever you do, don't use an unauthorized taxi! More...

Tram or Bus to the Métro

You can take the RATP T7 tram between Orly Airport and the Villejuif-Louis Aragon Métro Line M7 station (map) every 8 to 15 minutes for only 1.90. From the Métro station you can continue to anywhere else in Paris for the cost of a single Métro ticket.

The journey takes about 45 minutes, so it is not the fastest way to make the trip, though it is the cheapest.

RATP Bus 183 takes you between Orly Airport and the Métro Line M7 station at Porte de Choisy in about 40 minutes for 2. From the Métro station you can continue to anywhere else in Paris for the cost of a single Métro ticket. Bus 183 operates about every 15 to 40 minutes.

Private Transfer Services

If I'm going to travel by car-and-driver from Charles de Gaulle Airport into Paris, I prefer a private transfer service to a taxi:

—You know the transfer car will be there. You have contact information if it is not.

—You know what the fare will be, and there's no cost to make a reservation.

—You can expect a high standard of service because there is a company standing behind private transfer services, not just a driver.

MyDriver by Sixt

The most comfortable and hassle-free way to go is with a private airport transfer. Sixt, the German car rental/hire company, offers an excellent airport transfer service called MyDriver: you book your transfer online, your driver meets you at the airport arrivals area holding a sign bearing your name, helps with your luggage, and drives you in a late-model German car or van to your destination. It's particularly convenient and good value for groups of three to five travelers. More...

RER Suburban Trains

OrlyVal & RER Suburban Train

Take the OrlyVal airport shuttle tram (9.30) to the Antony station on RER Line B, then speed into central Paris—or even all the way to Charles de Gaulle Airport—quickly and easily. More...

Shuttle (Navette) & RER C2 Train

The Navette GO C Paris shuttle bus connects Orly Airport with the Pont-de-Rungis - Aéroport d'Orly RER station (map) on the RER C2 train line, allowing you direct access to these RER stations in central Paris: Gare d'Austerlitz, St-Michel, and Champ-de-Mars-Tour-Eiffel. At any of these RER stations, you can change to the Métro to reach your final destination.

Navette GO C shuttles depart every 15 minutes. The trip between the airport and the central Paris stations of the RER C takes about 30 minutes and costs 6.35.
