Some good info about how to get from Paris to Lille, courtesy of YYZ Deals Facebook Group member, Lindsay:
"To get from Paris to Lille you can take a Flibco bus or a Megabus. I think megabus actually stops at the airport a few times a day. Busses would take about three hours, so they are slower but also cheaper than the trains (Thalys and another option, I forget). In general it's 20-40 euros one way. Definitely buy ahead as the busses sell out and train tickets can get super pricy the day of. Alternatively, if you're up for an adventure, you can sign up for a cheap ride share with locals on blablacar."
