Buses to and from Paris Beauvais Airport (BVA)
A means of transportation to Paris, that is popular with visitors arriving at Beauvais Airport, is by the shuttle bus service.
Buses leave from Beauvais Airport to Paris 20 minutes after each arrival flight. Bus tickets can be purchased from the kiosks outside the airport. Only cash is accepted, no credit cards. The buses travel to Porte Maillot in Paris and drop off their passengers at a coach parking lot near the Hotel Concorde-La Fayette.
Once you have arrived by shuttle bus at the parking lot in Paris, you will need to find further transportation to your destination. Walk to the Paris Congress Center (Palais de Congres), and you will find a Métro station inside and an RER station across the street.
If you would like to save time on your arrival at Beauvais Airport, the bus tickets can be purchased online with your credit card. The ticket voucher, after purchase, can be printed out and will be accepted by the bus service.
To travel back to Paris Beauvais Airport from Paris, catch the same shuttle bus service. Buses depart from the same coach parking lot near the Hotel Concorde-La Fayette. Tickets can be purchased from the bus driver if you haven’t already secured one online. The bus driver only accepts cash for the tickets. Buses leave from the Paris parking area approximately 3 hours before each departure flight is due from Beauvais Airport. Try to arrive at the coach parking lot at least 3 hours and 15 minutes before your flight departure, or even earlier if possible, to ensure that you do not miss the bus.
Passengers at the Beauvais Airport can also use the shuttle service available to travel into the city of Beauvais. The bus can be found just in front of the Sixt Car Hire building at the airport. Tickets are purchased on the shuttle bus and the trip will take around 30 – 45 minutes. The bus travels to the train station, many local hotels and the cathedral.
An alternative to catching the bus in Paris is the tramway system. There are four modern tram lines, of which the T3 line is situated in the city of Paris. It runs between Pont du Garigliano and the Porte d’Ivry Métro station, along the southern edge of Paris.
The same tickets are used for the trams as the Paris Metro and public buses. These could be RATP tickets or passes. They can be purchased from the automated machines found on the platforms. Besides the T4 line, there are free connections between the RATP city buses and the trams. The T4 line is managed by the SNCF (the French National railways). The trams are suitably designed for mobility-impaired passengers or those who make use of a wheelchair.
Transport to Disneyland Paris is available by coach transfer from Beauvais Airport. Some of the companies that offer this service are Transfer Intelligence, Paris Blue Airport Shuttle and ATA Beauvais.
