by taxi

40 minutes without traffic (up to 3x at peak times), €45-60, 7 kg CO2*

A taxi can be practical if you have a lot of luggage, but note that it can take well more than twice as long at peak times.

*Note on greenhouse gas emissions estimation: An emission rate of 200 g/km CO2 equivalent has been assumed for taxis (about average for a large car in urban transport). Estimates from the SNCF and RATP (national and regional rail transport companies) for emissions due to long distance and urban rail transport range from 5-10 g/km/person CO2 equivalent, based on average occupancy and French electricity sources (80% nuclear); the higher figure has been used here. The average transatlantic plane journey has an emission of the order of 500 kg/person CO2.
