Renton is at the center of an extensive regional and international transportation network. Interstate 405 and State Routes 167, 169, 515 and 900 pass through the city, bringing more than 350,000 vehicles a day.

Arterials such as Rainier Avenue, Benson Road, Carr Road, and Duvall Avenue NE provide access to and from the city.

The City of Renton's Transportation Systems division plans, designs, constructs, operates, and maintains a transportation system that:

  • Provides safe and efficient movement of people and goods
  • Enhances environmental quality
  • Is compatible with local and regional mobility goals and development objectives

 The Transportation Systems Division includes five work groups:

  • Transportation Planning and Programming
  • Transportation Design and Construction
  • Transportation Operations
  • Transportation Maintenance
  • Renton Municipal Airport

Within Renton, bus and train services are provided by Sound Transit and King County Metro. City staff coordinates with these agencies to develop transit system improvements which can include service enhancements (new routes or improved service frequency) or capital investments (signal queue jumps and park and ride facilities). Sound Transit is investing in capital projects giving HOVs direct access to, or travel priority at, key locations into and out of downtown Renton.
