Best airport transfer booking from Paris Cergy
Cergy (France) — commune in Paris suburbs (northwestern suburbs, to be exact). It is placed almost twenty eight kilometers (or a bit more than seventeen miles) from Paris city center, in the Cergy-Pontoise’s “new town”. Such new towns (except Cergy-Pontoise near Paris there are also Sénart, Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, Marne-la-Vallée and Évry) were formed in France in the mid-sixtieth of the last century in order to control expansion of the cities.
Cergy is Cergy-Pontoise’s central commune with the highest amount of population among all of new town’s communes. Amount of inhabitants has developed quite quickly: from less than three thousand in 1968 to ten thousand in mid-seventieth, twenty thousand in early eightieth and almost fifty thousand in ninetieth. Than this increase has slowed down. Despite the fact that Pontoise (which is neighboring commune) is officially the capital of Val-d'Oise department, a lot of administrative buildings are placed in Cergy. They are prefecture building, administration and department council. So, de facto Cergy is a real Val-d'Oise’s capital.
In popular culture commune is quite known because the movie “I... comme Icare” (1979, director Henri Verneuil) was filmed there. The country where the story happened isn’t named, but USA was suggested. The filmmakers say that Cergy was chosen because of its modern, innovative architecture — that helped to avoid thinking of a particular country.
Ground transportation to the commune isn’t a complicated thing. It is presented by three RER stations (line A). Also there are direct buses from Charles de Gaulle airport. But if you want to make your trip more comfortable (overcrowding of public transport sometimes can be really annoying) it is also possible to book a transfer from (or to) any place of Paris or its suburbs. It is especially recommended (because of its convenience) to do from railway stations (Lyon, Austerlitz, Montparnasse, Saint-Lazare, Paris Est, etc.) and airports (Charles de Gaulles, Beauvais or Orly) — booking airport transfers is also possible.
