The Last-to-Be-Served Sound Off About ST3

Mapping the voter voices from the furthest reaches of the Prop. 1 transit plan.

November 2, 2016

KCTS 9 asked Facebook users who are residents of Everett, Redmond, Issaquah and Tacoma to share their opinions on the costs and benefits of a light rail system that may not reach them for 25 years. The comments we received were mapped according to their city of residence.

See the interactive map below.

Who Pays?

A map of the Sound Transit District where taxes will increase

Click to see the full-size map

The Sound Transit 3 measure will be decided by voters within the Sound Transit District, or more formally the Central Puget Sound Regional Transit Authority (RTA) District. This is the area where RTA taxes are collected and where the Sound Transit services they support are provided. The district includes the most-populated areas of King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. You can use the address locator tool to find out if your home address is within the district boundary.

Tax increases to pay for ST3 (sales, property and license tabs) will be confined to the district only.
