Sonja Holverson advises: Whether you are staying on the shores of Lake Geneva or in the center of town, you should take the M2 metro near the Hotel au Lac which will easily take you to the Lausanne train station, the center of town, the hospital, and upwards to the heights of the town of Epalinges.

NileGuide Expert tip:
Sonja Holverson advises: system maps are online but complicated. Ask for help. Also try TL transport Lausanne: Infoline: 0900 564 900 (CHF -.86/min). There is a Customer Office at the Flon Station, Place de l'Europe. There is also a search engine on the TL transport Lausanne website for specific schedules "horaires porte a porte" that is intuitive, but in French. You can also use the Swiss Rail website in English to look for bus schedules by putting in an address or the name of the bus stop in the drop down menu. http://www.sbb.ch/en/index.htm for the home page search and then use the drop down menu for type of departure such as an address or a bus stop name.
TL transport Lausanne offers many modes of transportation at all hours that are well coordinated and on time including the Metro, electric tramways, buses, trains, taxibuses, and also has partnerships with the Swiss Rail and CGN boat transportation company.
