Paris has a superb transport system which is fast, affordable and reliable. Orly Airport is served by several different modes of transport and we explain them all here in our Getting there section.
The airport’s very own light railway, the Orlyval, connects the airport to Paris’ extensive rail network, including the RER and the Métro. If you are staying in Paris, you will find the Métro in particular an invaluable tool.
A slower but cheaper method of transport is coach. Coaches have the advantage of being comfortable and more easily accessible: you don’t have to catch the Orlyval to get to the coach stops at Orly Airport. A number of local buses, less comfy but even cheaper, also serve the airport, if you are really trying to save your pennies.
If you have a bit more cash to splash, think about a taxi or a private transfer. Taxis are probably more expensive, but will get you to your destination more quickly than anything else. Private transfers tend to be more comfortable and slightly cheaper but they do stop a couple of times to drop off passengers.
For your own freedom to explore, nothing beats a car. Central Paris is a nightmare for car users, but getting to and from the airport is easy. You can also explore Paris’ vast suburbs too. There are lots of car hire places at Orly Airport and plenty of secure car parks.
Orly Airport is connected to the A106 autoroute (extension of the A6 autoroute).
