Charles de Gaulle Airport to Rouen, Which Metro Station to St. Lazare

We are taking the RER B train from CDG and need to transfer to a Paris Metro Station to go to Gare St.Lazare for our train trip to Rouen. I believe there are 2 possible Metro station for this transfer: Gare du Nord or Chatelet. My question: which of these two will require the least amount of walking inside of the Metro since we are carrying some luggage. Thank you for your help

You don't transfer to a metro at all but to RER E at Gare du Nord.
Fastest, easiest, simplest. Your ticket allows a transfer and St Lazare is the end of the line so hard to miss your stop! ;^)

According to the website www.transilien.com coming from CDG you get off at Châtelet-les-Halles and it is a 5 minute walk (a few minutes longer with luggage) to take métro line 14 to Gare Saint-Lazare.

I would change from the RER B to the RER E at Gare du Nord. It is just one stop from Gare du Nord to Saint Lazare-Haussmann, whereas taking line 14 means taking the RER B for an extra stop and then going 3 stops on the metro.

Are you renting a car in Rouen then. It's easy to rent at CDG and get on the road to Rouen.

Thank you so much to all of you thus far. The quickest route appears to be the transfer at Gare du Nord from RER B to E. Thank you for the photos from Gare St. Lazare. Everthing seems so easy now.

You'll walk 4-5 minutes at GdN to the E line, then another 5-7 minutes at GStL from the RER E to the SNCF lines above.
