Bus line extension

The extension of the bus line TL1 to the EPFL Innovation Park has now been confirmed. The bus will take a direct route from Lausanne main train station to the new terminus located on the Colladon parking area. The journey time will be approximately 25 minutes from Lausanne station. Work on the Colladon car park will start by the end of May and the line will be open as of 21 August 2023.

This line will run to the Ecublens VD, EPFL/Colladon terminus, only during peak hours from Monday to Friday. Outside these hours, the line will continue to terminate at Lausanne, Maladière.

FairPark, the new carpooling platform

After a first successful trial with about 400 participants in 2019, the use of FairPark, the carpooling platform, had to be interrupted due to the pandemic.

EPFL Sustainability and the EPFL Innovation Park are reactivating this platform in order to continue the promotion of carpooling on EPFL campuses. There is indeed a strong potential for pooling individual motorised journeys, the benefits of which are both financial and climatic.
