School bus service
You can’t bring your child to the Bilingual School? No problem, the Bilingual School comes to you! We come to pick up your child near you or your workplace.
Places and times are determined depending on demand. The stops are:
- Route 1 Lausanne-Crown: Epalinges, Le Mont, Crissier, Ecublens, UNIL
- Route 2 Morges-Lakeside: Morges-Gottaz, Morges-Rte de Lausanne, Préverenges, St-Sulpice
The morning tour is scheduled to arrive at school at 8:15 a.m.
The evening tour is scheduled to depart from school at 5:40 p.m. (after activities).
- Public transportation
The EBSR is in the heart of Lausanne, between the CFF station and the LEB / M1 / M2 station; it is on the route of all the bus lines stopping to Flon, Saint-François or the CFF station.
Children under 6 travel free on trains and buses, accompanied by an adult.
Between 6 and 16 years old, the Junior Card or the “Accompanied Child” Card (30 .- / year) allows children to travel if they are accompanied by one of the two parents (Junior card) or a designated companion from over 16 years old (“Accompanied Child” card – non-transferable). These two cards are also valid for SBB.
Children and young people aged 6 to 25 benefit from the Mobilis Junior Subscription (from 468.- for two zones to 864 for four zones) if they travel alone.
However, in practice, it cannot be recommended that children aged 6 or 7 take public transport without accompaniment. It is normally estimated that children (depending on the complexity and safety of the journey, the autonomy and the sense of responsibility of the child or group of children) can start taking public transport alone from 8 to 10 years old. You must of course prepare them carefully and ensure that the journey is safe.
From 11 years old and until the end of their schooling (from 5th primary EBSR / 7P Harmos), Lausanne schoolchildren benefit from a 50% reduction voucher on the annual Mobilis Junior subscription. The voucher is sent directly to the student’s home and is valid until end of September.
- Carpooling and Transport Sharing
Carpooling and public co-transport: we are happy to put families in the same neighborhoods or villages in touch in order to allow them to bring the children together, whether for a journey by car or on public transport. Please note that it is allowed to place children in the front passenger seat if they are placed in a suitable child seat (as in the rear seats); if the seat is placed rearward facing the airbag must be deactivated.
We wish you a safe and happy journey to the Bilingual School!
