Carpooling and car-sharing


As part of our plan to encourage cleaner forms of transportation, we offer a range of car-sharing services such as the Fairpark carpooling website and several car-sharing stations.


In order to promote carpooling at EPFL and to make better use of our parking spaces, the EPFL Sustainability Unit and EPFL Innovation Park have restored the Fairpark website to connect drivers with one another.

Some 81% of people who commute to EPFL by car are alone in their vehicles. According to our transportation survey, carpooling would be the preferred alternative when drivers don’t have access to a personal vehicle.

Carpoolers to EPFL will need to work out how to share commuting costs among themselves. Neither the MyCamipro payment app nor the Fairpark website can be used to manage payment-related issues. Carpoolers may decide that a non-monetary form of compensation is more appropriate, like buying the driver a meal, a for example.

If a driver cancels within 12 hours of departure, passengers may request a refund. The refundable amount per journey is capped at CHF 20 per person (up to CHF 60 per month).
