Travelling from Paris CDG airport via Air France bus or RER?

Jump to last reply

I'm heading out to Paris in a couple of months and a friend of mine who lives there told me to take the Air France bus from the Charles de Gaul airport instead of the RER. He said it wasn't safe for a female travelling alone to take that particular RER line and that it would be better to take the AF bus instead.

Does anyone know if it is really unsafe? I was surprised that he would say this since I hadn't read anything about that before during my trip planning but since he's lived there all his life, I thought maybe it would be better to take his advice.

Can i just buy tickets at the airport for the bus ride and does anyone know how much it costs? Also, my hotel is in the 15th arr. so will I have to take a taxi and/or metro after getting off the bus? Because if so, then I think I might take my chances with the RER because it would be a hassle to drag all my luggage by myself on and off different modes of transport.
