If you are staying at a hotel in Lausanne, you are eligible for a free daily pass for public transportation within Lausanne. You must ask for the pass at the Hotel Desk. Moreover, you also can use public transport free of charge in Lausanne (the Metro and buses) on the day of your arrival to get to your hotel; you will need to show your hotel reservation in case the authorities ask for tickets.

Please get a pass, even if you are at a hotel near the conference center. You will need the pass to go to the Olympic Museum on Thursday evening for the ASPLOS banquet.

Transportation

By plane/train

Genève-Cointrin (GVA) is the nearest airport (40 – 60 minutes). Zürich Airport (ZRH) is located 2.5 hours by train. The Swiss railroad (SBB CFF FFS – German / French / Italian) leaves from both airports and will take you quickly to Lausanne. There are 2-4 trains per hour from each airport. The SBB Mobile App displays train schedules and enables quick online ticket purchases.

Taxis and Uber are very expensive in Switzerland and public transportation is frequent and reliable (though not inexpensive), so it is preferable.

Other possible airports include Paris and Lyon in France and Milan in Italy. From these airports, you can take a train to Lausanne and get access to your hotel either on foot (Alpha-Palmiers Hotel) or by public transportation (Swisstech Hotel and Starling Hotel).
