    Question CDG to Porte Doree

    Hello, How difficult is it to switch from RER B (blue) coming from CDG to RER A (red) at Chatelet des Halles to get to RER Nation? Are the RERs on the same level? A short walk? We will have luggage and we are seniors. Might not be able to do it. Our ultimate Paris destination is Porte Doree. Thank you. jonesjc

    After studying the maps, it appears there are two ways to get from CDG to Porte Doree with only one transfer. 1. The Roissybus to Opera, then line 8 direction Creteil, station Porte Doree; 2. RER B direction Saint Remy les Chevreuse to Gare du Nord, then bus no. 46 direction Saint Mande, stop Porte Doree. The questions are: how difficult is it for seniors to transfer from the Roissybus to line 8 in Opera? stairs? escalators? elevator? long walk? AND how difficult is it for seniors to transfer from the RER B in Gare du Nord to bus no. 46? stairs? escalators? elevator? long walk? Any other recommendations for the easiest ( must be inexpensive) way to get from CDG to Porte Doree? Thank you.

    The transfer from the CDG RER B train to RER A train at Chatelet les Halles is the easiest transfer that I know of. The RER B and RER A trains for these two directions (from CDG and to Gare de Lyon/Marne La Vallée) share the same underground station platform. So this particular transfer requires you to leave the RER B train when it arrives at Chatelet les Halles, walk across the platform (takes about 20-30 seconds) and board the next RER A train which passes, all of which will stop at Nation.

    RER B train from CDG to Gare du Nord then bus 46 to Porte Dorée would be an easy to manage trip, since there will be escalators from the RER B platform under Gare du Nord and then a ground level transfer to the buses.

    The Roissybus to Metro Line 8 transfer will require you to navigate stairs at Opéra (descending/ascending) so I would recommend avoiding this if you have mobility restrictions.

    Best regards,
