Avenches is served by trains from Murten, Payerne and Berne operated by BLS. It is also connected by a bus operated by TPF to Fribourg. From nearby Faoug, boats connect to Murten, however it is much faster to take the train.
Avenches is small enough to walk around and see the sights easily. There is a local bus around Acenches and the surrounding towns operated by PostBus.
