Charles de Gaulle to Paris Bercy train station and Sim card

What is the best way to get from the Paris airport to the Paris Bercy train station (near our hotel)? We're happy to use the RER and/or metro. Also, we need to get a Sim card for our phone. Is it best to do that at the airport? Thanks for the help.

To learn how to get around Paris by métro/bus/RER use www.ratp.fr. Here is a link to a route planner:

http://www.ratp.fr/itineraires/en/ra...herche-avancee

Here is an interactive map of the system:

Since parts of this website are only in French you can also use www.transilien.com or www.vianavigo.com. Via Navigo probably has the most complete English website. A good website to learn how to use public transport in Paris is www.parisbytrain.com.

You'd take RER B to Châtelet-les-Halles and when you get off here walk a few steps to the adjacent platform to get RER A to Gare de Lyon and then switch to métro line 14 to Bercy.

You could also take RER B to Gare du Nord and when you get off here walk a few steps to the adjacent platform to get RER D to Gare de Lyon and then switch to métro line 14 to Bercy.

A taxi would probably cost about 50€ to 55€ and there's also the Air France bus which brings you to Gare de Lyon. From there it's one métro stop on line 14 to Bercy or a very brief taxi ride, or a brief bus ride on bus 87.
