Bus from Bruges to Paris

Does anyone know if there is a Bus from Bruges to Paris. I have read Rick Steve's and it mentions something about a bus for $25.00 to Paris but thats all I can find.

I found this answer from a traveler on thorntree:
Cheapest would be a Eurolines coach to Bruxelles-Midi (16-20 euros) and an Intercity train from there to Bruges (13,50 euros). When you choose France as your departure country, the Eurolines site will switch to French.

The next cheapest would be a TGV to Lille Flandres and a regional train (or trains) from there to Bruges. The standard fare for Paris-Lille is €53.70, but a Prem's ticket, if available, and booked NOW at is €21. You have to book in French and you print your own Prem's ticket. The fare for Lille-Bruges is €14.80.

The most expensive route (€86) is a Thalys train to Brussels and an Intercity train from there to Bruges.

If you don't want to go thru the French to get a print-at-home PREMs or other ticket for Lille-Paris ticket, you can go to (also an SNCF website) and, on the second page, set your country to "Great Britain" to keep it in English. You will still be able to print out any PREMs tickets you buy, or pick up other tickets at any French railway station. You can purchase your Bruges-Lille ticket while in that town....but if you want, you can check schedules and fares, and purchase in advance if you wish, at the Belgian national rail site, .

As another option, Thalys high-speed trains are currently showing fares from Bruges to Paris at thirty euros, and the travel time is much less than on the bus.
