The Emerald Network is an initiative of LivableStreets Alliance, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) advocacy organization. LivableStreets is dedicated to improving transportation systems in Metro Boston and unlocking access and opportunity for those most in need. The organization recognizes that transportation is linked to economic justice and public health, and works towards solutions that help make communities more connected and livable for everyone.

One of the ways LivableStreets is making this vision a reality is by connecting and completing the Emerald Network, a 200+ mile network of linked greenway paths across Metro Boston. When completed, the Emerald Network will be a system of safe, non-motorized pathways that parallel routes that many people already travel for commutes, pleasure, and exercise. As the network expands connections to transit, jobs, and open space, it has the power to transform how we get around our city and the region.
