Transportation industry professionals could have a wide variety of employment opportunities available in 2013, as more companies are dedicating resources toward clean travel options. According to Sustainable Business, 300 clean transportation projects have already been announced in the United States this year, and these assignments are expected to create thousands of jobs.

The news source points out that many transportation segment positions are readily available in California, Florida, North Carolina and other states. Additionally, industry experts are predicting that the clean transportation sector could have far-reaching effects on the U.S. economy. 

"It's now crystal-clear that clean energy and clean transportation are helping our economy recover," Judith Albert, executive director of Environmental Entrepreneurs, told the news source. "The projects and job announcements like we saw in 2012 can continue."

Texas officials are already enjoying the benefits of clean transportation projects across the state. The Dallas Morning News reports that the Lone Star State ranked ninth overall in the nation in terms of clean transportation employment opportunities last year and currently has 13 projects underway. New clean transportation industry positions could become available and help bolster the state's economy.
