   * **Orsay**: Small town but with most services, few small bars, an arthouse cinema/​theatre and a leisure centre. The transportation time to the CEA is about 20 minutes by public bus from the center and 15 minutes from Le Guichet (RER). You can also bike to the lab in 15-20 minutes, either along the road that passes by Le Guichet (longer but easier), or through the university (steeper). Part of these roads do not have bike lanes.   * **Orsay**: Small town but with most services, few small bars, an arthouse cinema/​theatre and a leisure centre.

   * **Towns on RER Line B**: keep in mind that the RER B trains stop at all stations in central Paris from Gare du Nord to Cité Universitaire,​ but that in the suburbs many express services only stop at Bourg-La-Reine,​ Antony, Massy-Palaiseau,​ Palaiseau, Palaiseau-Villebon and Lozere on the way to Le Guichet - you may need to change trains to get to and from other stations on the line.   * **Towns on RER Line B**: keep in mind that the RER B trains stop at all stations in central Paris from Gare du Nord to Cité Universitaire,​ but that in the suburbs many express services only stop at Bourg-La-Reine,​ Antony, Massy-Palaiseau,​ Palaiseau, Palaiseau-Villebon and Lozere on the way to Le Guichet - you may need to change trains to get to and from other stations on the line.
   * **Paris**: from the Denfert-Rochereau RER B station it takes about 45 minutes to reach the CEA by RER+bus if the connections work well, up to about 1:15 if everything goes badly (or occasionally much longer...), so about 1 hour travel time then. There’s also the CEA buses that leave from different parts of Paris such as Porte d'​Orléans. So the Denfert-Rochereau/​Porte d’Orleans/​Cite Universitaire/​Montrouge area is a popular place to live at.    * **Paris**: from the Denfert-Rochereau RER B station it takes about 45 minutes to reach the CEA by RER+bus if the connections work well, up to about 1:15 if everything goes badly (or occasionally much longer...), so about 1 hour travel time then.
