My family and I will be using Beauvais Airport and we want to use the train service to get to Marne-la-Vallee, is it possible to connect with the RER line A from the train station at Beauvais?


Yes, you can take the train from the Beauvais train station and connect to the RER line A. However, first you will need to take the shuttle from the Airport to the Beauvais train station. 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 these steps. This option has three transfers and the other has got four.



I need transportation from Beauvais Airport to Rouen on Aug 8th at 18.00h. Is there any bus service to Rouen either form the Airport or from downtown? Can you help me?


Only buses I could find are with the SNCF, French train company, who uses 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. Travel time from Beauvais to Rouen via train is 4-5 hours. You can book a train ticket online or buy it the day you travel.



Which metro or RER station is on the end of shuttle bus? Train goes direct from the Airport, or how far is the train station from the Airport and to which metro or RER station does the train arrive? Thank you very much.


The shuttle from Beauvais Airport to Paris arrives at Porte Maillot (metro line 1 and RER C).

The Airport has no direct train connections. The closest train station is Beauvais SNFC Station, 20 minutes by bus or 10 minutes by taxi from the Airport. If I understand your last question right, you mean the train from the town of Beauvais to Paris. If so, the train from Beauvais arrives at Gare du Nord. There, you can take RER B and D along with metro lines 4 and 5.
