Without knowing the details of what the strike entails, I would play it safe and order a taxi. I would also plan on extra time in case the roads are crowded because of the strike

Hi,

2 out of 3 trains will be circulating this weekend. What I saw last week was that most trains were stopping at Gare du Nord and then a train would leave to CDG (I had to wait 12 minutes). You can take the RER but just make sure you plan on spending 2 hours to get there, just in case.

If you don't want to spend 50+ in a cab, another option would be the RoissyBus from Opera. It has a nonstop service to CDG and usually takes around 45-50 minutes.

Thank you. It is kind of a pain to take the Roissy but with the strike it might be faster.

To take the Roissy bus, you will need to get to the stop at Opera. I still think that a taxi would be easiest.

The RER B is running reasonably well -- there's a train every 30 minutes today. Tomorrow should be better.

www.abcdtrains.com is the site to check.

You have to use "Paris Nord" as your starting point when asking for the Schedule because the site only gives information about SNCF lines.

Euromanic, you must not have heard about the taxi strikes.

Any idea what a taxi to Oberkampf would be? Looks like RER Train to Chatelet Les Halles and then cab from there will run the two of us about 30EUR. If the taxi isn't too much more, then seems better.
