DART Route 908
Renton Dial-a-Ride Transit (DART) offers two transportation services: fixed and (limited) variable routing. Route 908 and Route 909 provide DART service in portions of the Renton area.
The cost for this service is the same as a one-zone fare on a Metro bus. Ask the driver for a transfer to use on any of Metro's regular bus routes.
Scheduled Service/Fixed Routing
DART vans provide service at Metro bus stops along Route 908 and Route 909. Every trip passes through the Renton Transit Center. At the Renton Transit Center, you can transfer to other routes, including routes 101 and 106 to downtown Seattle.
You can request customized rides on DART by calling the DART reservation office. You need to make your trip request at least two hours before you want to be picked up, and you can make your reservations for 30 days at a time, up to 30 days in advance. Reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis.

A limited number of off-route deviations, only, can be made on any given trip. Vans can deviate from their fixed routes to serve other locations within the service area, but they cannot necessarily provide door-to-door service due to safety and other operational considerations (narrow streets, cul-de-sacs, etc.). You may be requested to board/deboard at a location a block or more from your home or destination.
Estimated pick-up and drop-off times will be provided at the time you call. Please be waiting at the curbside at the given pick-up time.
