Orly Shuttle to Gare de Lyon

Did a search but hoping to find happy customers who can recommend a shuttle service from Orly to Gare de Lyon. We just want it simple and easy and not use multiple means of transportation to get from point A to point B....thanks in advance

I've used many shuttle companies, but usually from CDG. However, the shuttle companies service both airports. A few months ago I used www.parishuttle.com and was fine with them.

I think the shuttle from Orly is 12.50 € pp. If you are two or more, I would jump in a taxi, particularly if non-rush hour.

A taxi is the most reliable transportation option in Paris. From ORY to Gare de Lyon a taxi will probably cost no more than 25€ to 30€ plus you will avoid all of shuttle headaches: prepayments, no shows, late shows, and delays caused by waiting for and dropping off other riders.

No you can't confirm a price with a taxi although they may give you an estimate, they run on a meter which goes down as you depart ( it will already have an initial charge on it, I think around 3€.)

taxis don't have flat fares in Paris, even to/from airports. Taxi fares aren't per person, so there isn't any fare "for two". There is a slight surcharge per person for four or more people, but it's just like taxis everywhere, the fare is for the trip not by person.

Decided on Paris Shuttle, do we tip the driver? Again, thanks to everyone for your help.
