About Le Bus Direct Paris



If you want a direct connection to the Paris Orly Airport or the Charles de Gaulle Airport, often referred to as Roissy-Charles de Gaulle depending upon what terminal you are going to, then the shuttle bus service that has been operating for several years, previously under the name Cars Air France, is a great option now run by Keolis in conjunction with Aeroports de Paris as Le Bus Direct for airport transfers.

With comfortable coaches that have reclining seats, air conditioning, along with some that are suitable for the disabled, you will find that they have different pick up and drop off points within the city of Paris, and a luggage service at each designated stop with unlimited baggage included in the price, so that you do not have to drag your cases on board.

Each of the coaches also has numerous bits of tourist documentation, plus WiFi and USB plugs, so that after your arrival at the airport you can sit back and relax on the journey discovering even more about Paris on your way to the impressive capital city of France.

But if you need to make a transfer between Orly Airport and Charles de Gaulle Airport, then Le Bus Direct also offer a direct service between the two Paris airports, and with a travel time of only approximately 90 minutes between the two, it is a lot less hassle and a cheaper, all-inclusive way to travel than some of the other options available.

Accessing Le Bus Direct Airport Shuttle Services



Now as we mentioned earlier, it does not matter what flight or what airline company you are travelling on, you can still utilise Le Bus Direct Airport transfers and shuttle bus services, with four different lines that run throughout the day and evening, every day of the year, regardless of whether there are any national French holidays.

You can purchase your ticket at ticket booths located at the departure points, or from the bus driver, however, you can also purchase your ticket in advance online at their website www.lebusdirect.com, and although they are not refundable after purchase, they are valid for an entire year for your chosen journey. Yet we would like to point out that the ticket must either be printed off or saved to your smartphone, so that you can present this to the driver before you would be allowed to board the coach.

All of the four Le Bus direct routes have a different pricing structure, as you will see from the maps and timetables, and this also varies depending upon whether you book a one way ticket, or book a return, plus there are different costs for children between certain ages compared to adults, and booking online is also a cheaper option compared to paying for your shuttle bus ticket at the time.

As you can no doubt appreciate, the travel times are always approximate, which is due to the traffic conditions when entering or leaving the city of Paris. So, it is also recommended that you arrive at the designated departure point at least 10 minutes prior to Le Bus Direct Paris airport coach departing time, so that you can check in your luggage and be seated securely and comfortably. Additionally, please allow ample time to reach the airport prior to your check-in time, again in case of traffic congestion or unforeseen circumstances.
