how many going?

if two or more can could be just as cheap.

Gare du Lyon?

RER would not be much cheaper than bus and hassle having to change en route.

If you are as concerned about cost as you are about words (not even a verb in your 'posts' and of course no hell nor thanks) then take the RER.

It is Gare de Lyon, not du, as Tomboy said. Lyon is a place.

I like the Air France bus, for one person, it is cost-effective. You can save money if you buy online RT. If that's where you want to go, I would do that rather than RER for sure, as it is a lot more relaxing way to go.

If there are more than 3 or 4 of you, and with luggage, and if you are not familiar with taking mass transportation, I'd take a regular Parisien taxi to Gare de Lyon. 55 EU from start to finish.

Can 4 folks plus luggage fit in one taxi?

Yes, they can, as there are taxi station wagons and vans that can hold up to 7 people plus luggage. You'd probably have to order one specifically, though, if heading OUT of Paris.

What about Uber? Are they allowed into station pick-up areas?

Ask before you get into the taxi, if you plan to use credit cards.
