The Career-on-Seine is located at the edge of the the Seine, to 13 km in the west of the Porte Shirt with Paris, 7 km in the east of Saint-Germain in Bush hammer, the sub-prefecture, and to 15 km in the north of Versailles, the prefecture.
In spite of the presence on its territory of three bridges crossing the Seine (bridge of the RER has, bridge of the line of Saint-Lazare and bridge of the highway A14), the city does not have an ordinary bridge of circulation. To cross the Seine and to reach Defense or Paris, it is necessary to cross is the bridge of Chatou, towards the south, where the Trunk road passes 186, that is to say to cross the bridge of Bezons where the secondary road D392 passes.
Consequently, the principal road axes of the commune, the secondary roads D311 (Bezons - Saint-Germain Bush hammer) and D321 (Careers - Chatou then the Croissy-on-Seine) are axes of local service road bringing back towards the main axes.
In the railway plan, the commune does not have a clean station and closest are the Gare of Chatou - Croissy, with Chatou, for the line has the RER and the Gare of Coals - the Career-on-Seine, with Houilles, also for the line has the RER and for the line Saint-Lazare of the Transilien.

Since 2006, the city belongs to the Communauté of communes of the Loop of the Seine.
HistoryAlthough the site is of old occupation, the hamlet was officially founded in 1137 by Suger, abbot of Saint-Denis at the 12th century, to increase the grounds and the incomes of the Abbey. Located on the sides of the valley of the Seine, Career-Saint-Denis indeed offered good grounds of alluvia, very fertile, as well as a calcareous stone of good quality: hard limestone. The hamlet taken besides the name of Career-Saint-Denis because of the multiple limestone quarries which were exploited there and this, until the 19th century.
Always under the supervision of the Abbey of Saint-Denis, the village gained however in autonomy with respect to its neighbors like Houilles or Montesson and saw its territory affirmed by the official reports of 1479,1633 and 1728. Career-Saint-Denis was place of hunting of the kings Henri II and Henri IV, and under the Old Mode, place supposed of residence of Louise of Vallière, favorite of Louis XIV, according to a persistent oral tradition.
An edict of June 1787 set up the parish of Career-Saint-Denis in municipality and finally, the law of June 10th, 1791 prescribing the alienation of the communal goods of the Church, completed to separate the village from the Abbey of Saint-Denis. For the first time, Career-Saint-Denis took the name of the Career-on-Seine (it definitively acquired this name only at the beginning of the 20th century).
The commune knew until the years 1960 a rather slow growth of its population, contrary to Chatou or Coals. The primary reason is that it is located out of the access roads towards Paris, and thus with the variation of the principal currents of urbanization. If this delay with the urbanization is filled very quickly today, the city still offers in its historical center a country atmosphere of old village which in fact a rather single place at small distance from the capital.
