    The roads the way i come you can use www.viamichelin.com for a good route planner, and a good map. The autoroutes A16,link Amiens with the paris region and ports of the north of France, towards UK via the tunnel Under the manche.
    The autoroute A29, link the north with connections for Normandie and the East of France.
    The autoroute A1, takes you with a connector on the A29,to link with the East and Ile de France paris region as well.
    Very easy city to drive on and plenty of parking by the gare and city center.The halles ave Gen Leclerc is my space.

    Le Crotoy to disneyland Paris et al.

    by gwened Written Jan 20, 2013

    well in that area I use the car, so best is to ask the tourist office in Le Crotoy for that information at
    contact@tourisme-crotoy.com

    other than that I see you can have a train by getting by taxi to Noyelles sur Mer taxi mob tel +33 (0) 6 16 66 01 93. then take the train to Paris gare du Nord: then take the RER E1 to Val de Fontenay and then the RER A to disneyland, better than going to inner paris on Chatelet.
    train schedules at http://www.ter-sncf.com/Regions/Picardie/fr/Default.aspx

    you can do it by bus from Le Crotoy to Noyelles sur Mer on line 9 , this is the bus of the region and go to line 9 for the schedule
    http://www.trans80.fr/horaire.html
    about 3€ ride. then the same above by train to Paris gare du nord and disneyland

    from beauvais to disneyland there is VEA bus service to the parks
    http://vea.fr/
    by taxi from Le Crotoy to Beauvais should be available but do not know the prices.The above number or the tourist office can tell you some estimates.

    hope it helps

    taxis from Albert

    by gwened Written Aug 23, 2012

    yes unfortunately you have to take a taxi as walking 7 kms is a bit long even for a walker like me. Car is king in that area, nice places thus. Are you staying in Albert? maybe your hotel can help you book the trip.

    This is the city of Albert authorise taxis, you will be ok with any

    nice low cost airlines airport-Beauvais

    by gwened Written May 27, 2012

    a convenient way to see Europe low cost especially ryanair is there. the schedules, rules, etc are tight but if on a budget is a great alternative.
    I try it once to Madrid, ok with just carry on luggage but if more and family not that convenient in my opinion. Other than it will be cheaper.

    moving in the Oise dept region of Picardie

    by gwened Written Apr 4, 2012

    Creil is an ok town in Picardie, dont know your interests. The transport by train is ok from Paris,about 30 mins best time, and by car too. the best schedules are obtained here
    http://www.ter-sncf.com/Regions/picardie/Fr/Se_deplacer_en_TER/Avant_mon_voyage/Recherche_d_itineraires/Default.aspx

    have it in schedules/itineraires. Once you choose your times and dates will revert back to voyages-sncf for the payment and tickets ;E-ticket is best no need to validate ,only inside the train by the inspector.

    Buses is not, its another department and region from Paris so those are not well established here yet. Public transport in the Oise department is here
    http://www.oise-mobilite.fr/
    it ,also has choices outside like going to Paris but revert you to the train.

    weather now is lovely 15C sunny,there, and looks like for the rest of the holiday coming up Easter.
    HOpe it helps
