|Air France Bus CDG Airport to Paris|
|Air France airport buses (Les Cars Air France) are open to all travelers, and 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.|
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...
These buses do not stop at Terminal 3 which you may reach via the CDGVal. More...
Any traveler may ride the Air France buses. You do not need to be an Air France flight passenger.
