At EPFL, almost 80% of commuters use public transport or soft mobility. This result was made possible by the implementation of an ambitious and innovative mobility plan. Take a look at our services!

In order to achieve the objectives set out in EPFL’s Climate and Sustainability Strategy, the School is progressively reducing the amount of space dedicated to traffic and car parking. It aims to improve universal mobility on its campuses, notably by collaborating with public transport operators and by developing adapted pedestrian and cycling infrastructures.

The new Maison de la mobilité is now open at Av Picard. More info here
