BEAUVAIS TO DISNEYLAND PARIS BY TRAIN

Yes, you can take the train from the Beauvais train station and connect to the RER line A. You will need to take the shuttle from the airport to the Beauvais train station and then take the train where you will arrive at Gare du Nord in Paris. From there you can take the RER line B or D and then hook up with the RER line A at Châtelet - Les Halles.
Another way to go with less transfers, is to take the Beauvais shuttle from the airport into Paris and then follow the directions I have here - Public Transportation Beauvais Airport To Disneyland Paris. This has three transfers and the other way four.

BEAUVAIS AIRPORT TO ROUEN

Question:

Bonjour,
I need transportation from Beauvais airport to Rouen on aug 8th at 18.00. Is there any bus service to Rouen either form the airport or from downtown? can you help me?
Thanks

Answer:

Only buses I could find are with the SNCF, French train company, who use buses for part of the trip from Beauvais to Rouen. But it is possible there is bus service out there. If you can’t find a bus, my suggestion is to take the airport shuttle to Paris and then take a train to Rouen. Not very direct I know but it might be your best bet. As all trains I saw went from Beauvais to Paris and then Paris to Rouen. Travel time from Beauvais to Rouen via train is 4-5 hours. You can book a train ticket online or buy the day you travel.
