Hey, I just got a job in Renton but have never been to Seattle or the neighboring areas before. I have read a bunch of threads and it seems Capitol Hill is an ideal place to live for a 23 year old. Im a pretty laid back gal hoping to find a place to live arounds others who are down to earth. Unfortunately I will not have a car and will have to rely on public transportation. Is the morning commute do-able from Capitol Hill to Renton? Thanks!

It seems there are direct buses from the convention center bus stop which is just on the edge of capitol hill to Renton (see link below). They'll take between 45min and 1h, it all really depends on where exactly you live and work and how much time you want spend in a bus each day.

Try looking at the Landing in Renton to live. Many younger people and would make transportation travel much more convenient.

I hope you like 2 hour commutes....Express lanes are running counter to you both times of day you'll be traveling. Traffic on 90 is a nightmare without access to them thanks to the 520 tolling. And Depending on where in Renton your job is, you might have to do some bus hopping.

It all depends on where your job is. When I was in my mid 20's I moved here and lived on Capitol Hill and drove to Renton each day. Easy commute for driving. I now live and work in Renton, but several of my co-workers drive in from Seattle. If you don't have to change buses it shouldn't be too bad, but if you have to make a bunch of transfers it might be more problematic. You might want to rent for 6 months on Capitol Hill and see if it will work. It sounds like Capitol Hill would suit you more to live than Renton. Capitol Hill is where it's at for young singles for sure.
