Taking the RER B train to the “Orsay-Ville” station
Directions of RER (and Métro) trains are always indicated by the final destination of the train, for RER B to the “Orsay-Ville” station this is either “Saint-Rémy-lès-Chevreuse” or “Orsay-Ville” (only during the rush hours in the morning and late afternoon). The RER B line splits outside Paris, furthermore the trains do not stop at all stations, so please check the indicator board installed on the platform for the “Orsay-Ville” stop.
The “Orsay-Ville” station is about 40 minutes away from the center of Paris (”Chatelet – Les Halles”), about 30 minutes from its periphery (”Cité Universitaire”), 15-20 minutes from “Antony” (interconnection with Orly airport) and 75 minutes from Charles De Gaulle Airport. Trains are scheduled about every 15 minutes.
Be aware that outside Paris (the last southbound RER B station inside Paris is “Cité Universitaire”) not all stations are served by all trains all the time. Especially in the morning and evening rush hours some stations that are normally served by trains to “Saint-Rémy-lès-Chevreuse” are skipped.
So if your station is only served by outbound trains with destination “Massy-Palaiseau”, take the train until its terminus. In order to take the corresponding train to “Orsay-Ville” you have to change platforms. When returning from the conference, check the indicator board at the “Orsay-Ville” station for your destination. If it is not marked, change once more at “Massy-Palaiseau”. This time the train leaves from the same platform.
Your station is only served by trains with destination “Orsay-Ville”. No problem either. Take the train until its terminal. There you have to change platforms (there are only 2…) in order to catch a train that brings you one station further to the “Bures-sur-Yvette” station. The other way round, in the evening rush hour, you might once more have to change trains in “Orsay-Ville” in order to get back to your hotel (check the billboard). However, this time the connecting train leaves from the same platform.
Screens can be found on every platform displaying the destinations of the next trains leaving.
