Located in the heart of the Flon Valley at the Place de l’Europe, this station provides the beginning of an infrastructure network of transportation systems that will link Lausanne's center to its suburban peripheries. Four different lines of commuter services converge on the group of rectilinear steel-framed structures, which are sheathed in red-printed glass. The first phase, inaugurated in 2001, consists of the regional train and bus stations, elevators, a glass-enclosed bridge and a new traffic circle. The second phase will include a subway station, escalators with a glass envelope
and an oblique plaza.
