I am researching on getting from Beauvais Airport to Paris. Lot websites say there are shuttle buses and taxies from Beauvais Airport to Gare SNCF de Beauvais. When I dig in google, it says it might mean “Beauvais train station”. Some websites say the shuttle buses are going to Beauvais City Centre.

I really like to if Gare SNCF de Beauvais means this train station or Beauvais City Centre or a train station in Beauvais City Centre?

Please help when timer permits.

The shuttle bus serves both the city center and the train station and from what I gather costs 4 EUR. There is also a shuttle to the Paris Metro and RER station at Porte Maillot which costs 13 EUR.

Gare SNCF would refer to the “regular” train station for long distance trains. SNCF is Society Nationale de Chemin du Fer (sorry if my French spelling isn’t correct), the French National rail company. Gare SNCF would be used to distinguish that station from a commuter light rail or other station for only local trains. You’d catch the train to Paris (Gare du Nord) at the SNCF station. http://www.beauvais-…
