Lausanne/Switzerland public transports pass

I'll be in Switzerland for about 5 or 6 months to finish my master degree in EPFL.
I was wondering how much will I spend in public transports per month?
Consider that maybe I'll have a house to stay in Pully. Only Maybe.

If you don't know such information, could you point me the proper websites?

I apologize : Pully is still in Zone 11 (same as in Lausanne). Anything after Pully (including Lutry) is in Zone 12.

So if you will be living in Pully:

it's only one zone so it will cost you:

Fr. 66.- / month
(47.- if less than 25)

@ Ramtin[e]

You were right the first time.

He/she lives in zone 11 (Pully) but the EPFL (school) is in zone 12 so two zones.

Anyway, you automatically get two zones whether you want it or not. And the price is now 70.-/month, except if you're under 25 or over 65.

It's around 120.- for 3 zones, if I remember well.

Many thanks Verbier. I completely forgot the OP is commuting to EPFL. I know that Renens is in zone 12, so it should be the same for EPFL.

Just imagine if your bus stop is just after the limit of zone 12. Paying Fr. 50.- more

Re: Lausanne/Switzerland public transports pass

So, if I live in central Lausanne or Pully, the monthly fee will be about 50 CHF for me (23yrs old)

Thanks

Any more information you can give me would be helpful!

Yeah, OH works just outside of the zone 12 limit, but still takes a bus that leaves from centre Lausanne. Not fun
