Paris Public Transport - Meudon to CDG

Hi,

Currently in Paris (Meudon) and looking to travel to CDG tomorrow afternoon. There's a tram line a few minutes walking from the hotel (close to the rather large shopping mall) and routing looks fairly straightforward. What I'm not so sure about is the ticketing. Should I be able to buy a single ticket, at the tram stop (or on the tram) to get me all the way to CDG. Or will it be separate tickets for tram and RER? The routing I'm looking at is:

- Velizy 2 to Viroflay Rive Gauche.
- Gare de Viroflay Rive Gauche to Saint-Michel - Notre-Dame
- Saint-Michel - Notre-Dame to CDG2.

I think you will have one ticket for the tram and one for the whole train ride.
PS : I admire you to do all this with public transportation (I would have jumped in a Uber . Schedule ample time. It will be a long trip

Should take about 1H30. About 1/4 hr for the tram ride and 1H1/4 for the RERC+RERB ride. An alternative would be bus 379 to Croix de Berny and RER B direct from there. Should take about the same time.

Thank you both. A consideration is how busy the roads will be this afternoon (start of school holidays here), hence public transport that may be more reliable than the roads (last time, I used Uber, but that was earlier in the day).

Ummm,..... Used Uber... took two and a half hours. I left plenty of time and EZY 1928 ended up being best part of an hour anyway. Kudos to my (well tipped) Uber driver who made constant use of Waze and kept me updated every step of the way. Tram and RER would have been faster though :-D
