ARRIVING BY PLANE

Geneva airport is only 45 minutes away from Lausanne using a car or public transportation. There are trains departing from Geneva Airport every 15 minutes and the train station is located in the airport.
Zurich airport is 2.5 hours away by car and by train. There is also a station in the airport and trains to Lausanne leave every 15 minutes.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT

We highly recommend to use public transportation (Metro M1, stop EPFL) to come to the event as it is by far the best way to get around in Lausanne.
The metro M1 can bring you to the SwissTech Convention Center from the Renens train station or the city center of Lausanne. It comes every 5 minutes and it will only take you 10 minutes to get here.

Use public transportation for free!

By staying in a hotel in Lausanne and paying the city tax, you gain free and unrestricted access to all of the city’s public transportation (bus, train, metro). The Lausanne Transport Card, the key to mobility is distributed in every accommodation in Lausanne.

TRAIN

You can reach EPFL by public transportation from the Lausanne or Renens train stations. See the Swiss Railway website for details and timetables.
From Lausanne train station (20 min), take the Metro M2 (direction Epalinges, Croisette), stop at Lausanne-Flon, change to the Metro M1 that will take you to the EPFL stop that is next to the SwissTech Convention Center.

From Renens train station (10 min), take the Metro M1 which starts in the train station next to Track 1. It will take you to the EPFL stop.

 

CAR

The SwissTech Convention Center is 10 minutes away from the highway exit “Lausanne Sud, UNIL-EPFL”. Parking Rivier is one of the best options, just across the street from STCC. The Conference Center has its own underground paid parking lot: Parking les Arcades. If you want more information about parking, visit parking.epfl.ch.

If you are in Lausanne city center and would like to use a taxi service, we highly recommend Uber, as it is significantly more affordable.
