The RoissyBus airport bus, a service of Paris's RATP public transport system, shuttles passengers between all 8 of the terminals at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport and Place Charles Garnier, next to the Place de l'Opéra in central Paris for 12 one-way/single.

(Place Charles Garnier is where rue Scribe meets rue Auber [map]. The bus stop is on rue Scribe at the corner of rue Auber, across rue Scribe from the Palais Garnier.)

At Place de l'Opéra you can connect by Métro, city bus, or taxi to any other point in Paris.

RoissyBus Schedules

RoissyBus service begins at 05:15 am from the Place Charles Garnier in central Paris, at 06:00 am from Aéroport Paris-Charles de Gaulle. The RoissyBus stops at all eight of CDG's terminals (except Terminal 2G, which you reach by shuttle bus from Terminal 2E.)

Buses run every 15 minutes until 20:00 (8:00 pm), and every 20 minutes from 20:00 to 00:30 (8:00 pm to 12:30 am). The ride takes about 60 to 75 minutes in average mid-day weekday traffic. If you travel at morning or evening rush hour, particularly if you're going into the city in the morning rush, or out to the airport in the evening rush, you must plan at least 50% more time. (Compare this travel time with that of the faster RER Line B trains, which do not have to wait for traffic. More...)

Note that there is no toilet on the bus, and no bus office with a toilet, at the rue Scribe/Place Charles Garnier bus stop, so come prepared.

RoissyBus Tickets & Fares

The one-way/single fare is 16.20€, the same as Le Bus Direct and just a bit more than the RER B suburban train—but the train, not having to contend with Paris traffic like the bus does, is usually faster, and the train serves more destinations in central Paris. More...

Use your credit/debit card in the special machine aboard the bus to pay your fare, up to three fares on the same card (for example, for a traveling party of three). Or load the fare onto your Navigo Easy card. More...

You may also purchase your ticket from the driver using coins, euro notes/bills, or credit card when you board the bus. The driver will give you a receipt which serves as your ticket.

Here's more on the RoissyBus.

Bus 350 & 351

Another RATP service is Bus 350 which connects Aérogare 2 with the Gare de l'Est in Paris, and Bus 351 which connects Aérogare 2 with Place de la Nation (map).

The fare for either bus is the lowest—2.10.

But the trip is not fast. From CDG Airport to Gare de l'Est can take 60 to 90 minutes, about 70 to 90 minutes to Place de la Nation.

Both buses depart every 15 to 30 minutes: from 06:05 am to 22:30 (10:30 pm) for Bus 350 (Gare de l'Est), and from 07:00 am to 21:37 (9:37 pm) for Bus 351 (Place de la Nation). More...

RER B & Le Bus Direct

You should also consider the RER B suburban train to travel between Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport and the center of Paris, and you may want to consider the similarly-priced Le Bus Direct airport buses. More...
