I know both of those girls Thanks for the info.

I'll be sure to use Google next time so as not to bother "busdriver." Apparently, the 75 is the new "tool box" around Memphis

The RER costs 9.25 Euros.
Actually, IF you are down to your last Buck in your Deviation Bank or just plain Cheap, the Cheapest way is to Take the Roissy-Bus from CDG to Downtown Paris. You catch it down on ground floor Between Terminal 2 D-F when you come out from Baggage Claim, near rental car counters. You get on the one that takes you to L'Opera. (The Air France Bus has a stop there also.)
The Bus ride drops you off behind the Opera House. Look for Metro Sign and Take steps down to Opera Metro Station.
Then catch the Metro "8" from Opera, to Direction Balard get off @ Stop Concorde, then catch Metro 1 Direction La Defense get off @ Port Maillot. Walk to Check in Desk through Mall.
It is a little longer trip with more Stops but will cost 6.95 including Metro ticket .

I think even our tightest cheap wades would spring an extra 3 euros to avoid multiple transfers, but from some of the stories I've heard from FO's about cheap Captains, well......

I stand corrected on the RER fare, it is 9.25. BTW, this option could be faster than any road option if the traffic is bad.

Or one could always catch the Black Bus to the Marriott and hitch a ride to CDG ops and then wait in a recliner several Hours and try to catch a Ride in with a Operating FDX crew

FYI.....If you are going to ride the RER train/Metro - make sure you have Euro COINS to purchase ticket from the ticket machine - they do not take Euro paper money.

If all you have is paper Euro, you have to stand in line and buy your ticket from a real person = much bigger hassle.
