Renton School District provides free transportation for students who live within their school attendance area but outside the school’s walk zone. Additional consideration is given to students with special needs.
Elementary schools have a 1-mile walk boundary. Middle and high schools have a 2-mile walk boundary. Eligible students are provided service beyond the walk boundary.
Bus Route Information
Bus route information is emailed to eligible families a few days prior to the start of each school year. For questions or concerns about your student's school bus stop and routes, please contact Transportation Routing.
Students should arrive to their designated bus stop location five (5) minutes prior to the scheduled arrival of the bus. Transportation schedules will not allow for drivers to remain at a stop location waiting for students.
for Kindergarten and Preschool Students
For preschool and kindergarten families: Students will NOT be allowed off of the bus without a parent/guardian present at the stop location. In order for your student to be dropped off with a sibling or other authorized adult the parent/guardian is required to sign this release form and return it to the driver.
Ride360 Mobile App
Transportation offers a mobile app called Ride360 that allows families to look up bus route information, receive alerts/notifications and more.
We are dedicated to provide safe, effective and efficient transportation focusing on the safety and well being of all the students.
