Paris Travel Planner   OrlyBus: Orly Airport to Paris
A service of RATP, the company that operates the Paris Métro and city bus system, the Orlybus takes you between Orly Airport and central Paris.

Paris Girls Secret Society, the new novel by Tom Brosnahan



Traveling from Orly Airport to Paris, if you don't use the OrlyVal shuttle train and RER Line B train, you can use the OrlyBus from the Orly Ouest or Orly Sud airport terminals.


OrlyBus goes from Orly Airport directly to the Denfert-Rochereau RER station (map), from which you can continue to any place in Paris by RER suburban train, by Métro, RATP city bus, or taxi.

Buses depart every 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the time of day. The journey takes about 30 minutes.

Service begins at 05:35 am, and ends at 23:05 (11:05 pm); Friday, Saturday, Sunday and the evenings of holidays, service continues until 00:05 (12:05 am).

One-way/single fare is 8.30€.

If you have lots of luggage, or heavy luggage, or mobility challenges, or three or more people in your traveling party, you should consider alternative means of airport transport:

Le Bus Direct

Le Bus Direct, formerly Les Cars 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...

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...
