Buying bus ticket for seniors

We have been taking the bus throughout Lausanne. Just wondering if there is a discount for seniors while buying a ticket? Is the fare regular adult or less?

I don't have any direct experience of Lausanne, but I have never seen a case of senior discounts for normal tickets in Switzerland.
Public transport generally runs to the same rules for trains and local transport. If you have a Half Fare Card then you pay half fare (same as childs fare), otherwise no discounts.
Monthly and annual passes (both local and national) sold to residents sometimes have a discount for over 65.

Many cities in Switzerland give you free transport within the city if you are staying in a hotel. Again, I don't have direct info if this also applies to Lausanne.

The OP should contact the Lausanne Tourist Office for answer.

What Chris says. Many cities in Switzerland give you free transport within the city if you are staying in a hotel.

Don’t forget to ask the establishment providing your lodging for your
personal Lausanne Transport Card (LTC)! You can use public transport
(bus, train, metro) for free during your whole stay (maximum 15 days)
in Lausanne and its surroundings. But that’s not all! Thanks to our
partners, you benefit from exceptional discounts and advantages from
many museums, shops and other leisure activity providers.
