If you live in Pierce, King or Snohomish Counties, you will see an initiative on November's ballot called Sound Transit Regional Proposition 1. The measure will determine whether the region adopts a $54 billion transit plan called Sound Transit 3, or ST3 for short.

When voters open their ballots, they might see a few paragraphs about the plan. But ST3 can't be explained with just one page. 

In this first piece from Sound Transit 3: The $54 Billion Question, knkx's Simone Alicea talks with host Ed Ronco about some of the plan's highlights and the conversation surrounding it.
