getting from CDG train station to terminal 1?

I will be traveling by train from Amsterdam to Paris CDG airport. The train station is at terminal 2, and I fly out of terminal 1. What would be the quickest way from the train station to terminal 1? Also, my flight is at 1:30, and the earliest train gets to the airport at 11:45. I know that is tight, but I dont have a choice. Will that give me enough time to make my flight?

The new CDGVAL (driverless light rail) has replaced the airport shuttle buses. Trains run every five minutes, the time between Terminal 2 and Terminal 1 is eight minutes, and the service is free. For more information, visit

What does your airline say? You have a better chance of getting accurate information from them than you do here.

That would be too close for me. I agree checking with your airline. If possible get there the day before and stay at a hotel near the airport. Take their shuttle directly to the airport. With security and everything I always want to leave myself extra time.

Your airline will tell you to be there AT LEAST TWO TO THREE HOURS (depending on the airline) in for U-S airlines in Paris is notoriously tight. Maybe take the last train available the night before and check into a CDG hotel. has the inexpensive Ibis and Etap chains at CDG Nord 2 (do a search on "Roissy") with a 15-20 minute shuttle to the terminals.
