If you are staying at a hotel, you’ll receive free of charge a public transport pass from your hotel. This personal card gives free travel on Lausanne’s public transport system for each guest staying in a hotel and paying the tourist tax for overnight stays.
The card is issued by the hotel on check-in and is valid for the duration of the reservation, including the day of departure and in the following zones 11, 12, 15, 16, 18 and 19 (2nd class).
If you are not staying at a hotel (hence not given a public transport pass), you can buy public transport tickets at
- TL (Lausanne public transport) machines at the metro or bus stations.
- Online at SBB.ch or t-l.ch
- Via the smartphone apps of SBB (available at App Store and Google Play) or TL (available at App Store and Google Play)
