School Transport

We offer a school bus service using our own fleet of modern, clean and safe buses. Routes operate around Lausanne and the Lake Geneva area, up to a radius of approximately 25 km from the school.

The Safest Transport Options Available

Collège Champittet always strives to be cognizant of student safety. For this reason, we operate our own minibus fleet designed to fulfil all safety requirements. Each of our drivers has been carefully selected based upon their proven reliability and warm, friendly attitudes. 

Our transport system is based on fare zones and includes a maximum transportation time. Children living the farthest away will be the first ones on the bus and the last ones to leave. Because school transportation is not permitted to travel on speed road sections, transport timing may fluctuate according to the traffic.

A Reliable School Transport Schedule

Our minibus fleet runs twice every weekday morning. The first transport arrives on campus before 8 a.m. The second arrives before 9 a.m. There are two return trips each afternoon — at 3:40 p.m. and 5 p.m. — except for Wednesday, which departs solely at 2:20 p.m.

While we try to guarantee every student a spot, we do have capacity limitations. For this reason, we recommend that you register for bus service as soon as possible. After your application, we require a period of five working days to register your child in our bus system. They will be automatically registered for either return or single trips for the entire five days a week.

Transport Payment, Cancellation and Modification

All transport prices are calculated as a flat annual fee. The cost will depend on several factors:

  • Your zone (1, 2 or 3):.
  • The number of trips per year: We take into consideration absences for extracurricular activities and holidays.
  • Discounts for family members: If you have multiple children using our school transport, we will reduce your fees. Our discounts include 25 percent for a second child, 35 percent for a third child, and 50 percent for a fourth child and beyond.

This fee will be charged on an annual basis for periods exceeding one month. Transport costs are billed in advance for each term, and they must be paid within 10 days of receiving the invoice.

You may cancel your school transportation for the end of term provided you notify us in writing within the two-month deadline. We will acknowledge your cancellation in writing in response. 

We also ask that you request any changes in writing two days in advance, as this allows us to closely monitor our bus attendance and absences. Doing so helps us keep an accurate eye on our transport and ensure the utmost safety for our students. In the case of an emergency, we accept requested changes to routes or times made via telephone or, if necessary, SMS. Please let the driver know at least 15 minutes before the scheduled pickup time.
