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.

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.

Sustainable transportation

Point Vélo

Our bike center is spearheading the cycling movement at EPFL. There you’ll find new and used bikes at reduced prices, at-cost repairs and free bike mechanics classes.

Other cycling services

A number of other cycling initiatives, services and events have been rolled out for the EPFL community in order to support soft mobility and biking.

“Campus Pieton” Project

As part of our drive to create more accessible, inclusive campuses, we have introduced the Campus Piéton project to give pedestrians and cyclists priority in our public spaces.

Public transportation

Everything you need to know about train, bus and metro around EPFL campuses, including subsidies, sales points, etc.

Vehicles and parkings

Carpooling and Car-sharing

In order to promote carpooling, the EPFL Sustainability Unit has set up a website called Fairpark to connect car drivers with one another.

Parkings and charging stations

EPFL employees can use reserved parking places (in yellow) or shared places (in green). White parking places are for visitors and require a ticket.
