Green Transportation

  • Public Transportation

  • Fuel Efficient Vehicles

The green transportation industry in our four-county area (King, Kitsap, Pierce, Snohomish) focuses on two subsectors: Public Transportation and Fuel Efficient Vehicles.

The Public Transportation subsector develops products and systems with a low impact on the environment and are fuel efficient like: car sharing, vanpooling, buses, trains, streetcars, ferries and transit-oriented development.

The Fuel Efficient Vehicles subsector develops products that use renewable or alternative energy like: battery electricity, biofuel, hydrogen, compressed air, or hybrids that combine a renewable/alternative source (usually electricity) with gasoline.

Here are some examples of jobs in the Green Transportation subsectors:
