Departure Station: All coaches from London to Paris will depart from London Victoria Coach Station, whether travellers book with Eurolines or Ouibus. The Coach Station can easily be reached from most parts of London. The best option in many cases will be to catch the Underground to Victoria, then walk to the Coach Station (leave 10-15 minutes to be sure of making the connection on time). The Coach Station has limited shops and eating options, but Victoria Station offers everything travellers need.
Arrival Station: Buses from London will arrive at the Gare Routiere Gallieni or the Gare Routiere Bercy-Seine. Gallieni is located in eastern Paris, not far from the city's main ring road. To get into town, transfer to the Metro Line 3, and catch services towards Republique. Buses also run into central districts from outside the Bus Station. Bercy is much more central. Many arrivals can walk to hotels or attractions, and Bercy Metro Station is also within a 5-minute walk. So onward travel should not be a problem.
