Transportation

6 adults are traveling from CDG airport to our hotel on Rue Bonapart near St. Sulpice and we are thinking it will be cheaper and easier to take a taxi, but can we get a taxi for 6 adults and their luggage? How can I know for sure? I read awful reviews about super shuttles, are there other shuttle companies?

If you don't have too much luggage, you can use public transportation. The Paris Transit (RatP.fr) website gives directions, here.

Just find the official taxi rank outside your terminal and get in line. The taximaster will get you into a minivan taxi that will accommodate your group. No need for private shuttles.

Thanks Tom and Lee for your replies. My concern is that there are not going to be Taxis big enough to carry six adults and 6 pieces of luggage. Is there a way that I can verify that there are taxis that big? We know we can do rer and get to where we are going, but when calculating the cost, it seemed to be about the equivalent to what a Taxi may cost, unless the price goes significantly up for the larger vehicle and extra people.

I hate to be obvious, but, ahem, you could hire two taxis if a large vehicle s not available.

Yeah, we talked about renting two taxis or if a big taxi isn't available, we may just hop on the rer. I just wondered if others knew what was available in Taxis. I am done worrying about it. Thanks all.

Lee, Thank you so much for that link to the Paris Mass Transit. THAT WAS SO HELPFUL! I now have the confidence to proceed on the RER to our hotel.
