Does anyone know of a good bus company and rough cost of taking 32 people from Orly Airport to the city of Paris.

We see lots of sports teams on the RER. Which is a train.

You probably want to hire a driver, right?

I do find it interesting that if one searches for 32 people on a bus from Orly, a particular company name comes up. It's almost as if this question were designed to elicit that company's name. You can certainly google it and find the exact same company, I'm sure. I doubt many of us here will have had experience transporting 32 people by buses.

The cost is roughly 360€ one way, double it for a round trip.

I hope you weren't suggesting that I am complicit in this? I think I have been around here long enough for posters to know that this is not my style.

Oh, no, Pericoloso (many pardons!) You were doing just what I was doing - trying to be helpful, but when I just typed in the OP's request, a specific company came up (it's not the same one that you found). But, like you, I have no experience with the company (and we all have read the shuttle stories here...)

At any rate, further searching seems to show that a typical way of getting 32 people into Paris is to hire 4 shuttles with 8 seats each.

Anyway, there may be a couple of regulars who have bus hire experience, and they may be sleeping or near bedtime right now, so wait a bit and we'll keep bumping this up.

I would think with a group of 32 you would be working with an incoming agency who sets all those details up...or wherever this group is staying would be of some help. This tends to be a forum for individual travelers but maybe we have some group experts here? Never know.

Here many of the buses are 32 seater's which possibly explains why the options pop up this way.

You need to hire a full sized coach. My airline often used Pacific Cars for such things, but they deal mostly with CDG. It is likely that there are other companies specialized in Orly.

The name of the main coach company in France comes to mind: Suzanne

Thank you everyone for your helpful replies. I did get a quote from one company but it looks like it might be cheaper per person if we get about 8 taxis and go individually!! I assume there are lots of taxis outside the airport???

Yes, of course, and there will be bigger ones, so you might manage with 4 or 5.

You might even find some intrepid souls in your group who would like to try public transportation options -- especially if others in the group offer to take their luggage in one of the taxis. Then they could have a race to see who arrives first.
