Price is 17.50€ or 16.60€ when purchased in advance. Allow one hour en route time. Actual times vary depending upon traffic and your actual boarding location.

From CDG the bus stops at Gare de Lyon first. It arrives at Gare Montparnasse in 1h15m. Returning it takes 15m to go from Montparnasse to Lyon. Do the math.

FYI:

You can also take RER line B to Gare du Nord -- then Line D to Gare de Lyon. Takes about 45-50 min. and costs ~€9 I believe. But if you have lots of luggage, it's probably not the best option.

(The RATP site has the change at Chatalet to Line A, but I suspect changing to line D at Gare du Nord is just as good. Either way probably works OK)

Changing at Gare du Nord is indeed better than changing at Châtelet-Les Halles.

I friend and I stayed not far from Gare de Lyon in July....we figured the bus would cost about 35 euros for two .
Took a taxi for 55 euros ( it was Sunday so traffic was not an issue)
RER ( with luggage and changes would not
be my choice ).
