Transfer from Gare Austerlitz to Roissy Charles de Gaulle TGV station

If I am arriving to Austerlitz on a train at 10:50, do I have enough time to get to Roissy CDG TGV station for a TGV that departs at 12:40? Is that cutting it too close? via train? via taxi?
(And don't ask why I'm doing this - it was a booking mistake!)
Thank you!

You should make it. I'd take a taxi but I'd do a quick Google maps at the station for real time driving directions to make sure that traffic will not be working against you.

You can get there in under 1 hour by either taking the RER C to St Michel-Notre Dame and change to the RER B there, or the Metro No 5 to Gare du Nord and changing there.

What day of the week ?

also I would seriously doubt you can get there in under one hour via rail given the time needed to disembark at Austerlitz, make your way to the metro (or RER) part of the station, buy a ticket, then take either the 5 or the RER C to the RER B, then make your way in the second station to the change point there, then make the journey out to CDG.

The travel time of the two trains together might be just under an hour, but you'll need to take real-life conditions into effect . (It shouldn't take more than about an hour and a half,and if traffic is backed up, could easily be quicker than going by road .)

A taxi from Austerlitz to CDG is a fixed rate of €65, plus maybe some small fee for pickup at the rail station. (But I am not sure about that last part.) The good thing about the fixed-rate taxi is you don't have to worry about the meter running up even if you end up stuck in traffic.
