The Emerald Network is an initiative of LivableStreets Alliance. For more than 12 years LivableStreets  has been enabling people to think differently and demand a transportation system that balances transit, walking, and biking with automobiles. We promote safe, convenient, and affordable transportation in the Metro Boston, making our community more connected and more livable for everyone.

One of the ways we are making this vision a reality is by implementing the Emerald Network, a vision for 200 miles of seamless greenways across the Metro Boston area, creating an urban recreation and transportation system that is safe and convenient for all.

The Emerald Network is a collaborative effort engaging multiple municipalities, public agencies, community members, and institutions.The strength of participation and ideas generated at our events has demonstrated the direct value of engaging individual communities to grow our work.
