Bi-State Development BSD Website History

  • BSD proudly serves the City of St. Louis and six adjacent counties, including Missouri’s Jefferson, St. Charles, and St. Louis Counties, and Illinois’ Madison, Monroe and St. Clair Counties. Together, these areas form partnerships that better each other and the St. Louis region as a whole.
  • One of the first transit agencies in the nation to operate wheelchair-lift equipped buses in regular service. Our St. Louis Downtown Airport (formerly Parks) has a rich history of its own. Today, the airport and its surrounding business park deliver nearly $600 million in economic impact to southern Illinois. What’s more, last year leaders chose us to run a regional freight district; coordinating with industry and government to enhance and grow the $6 billion in goods traveling through our area by rail, road, river, and runway.
  • Iconic Eads Bridge, an integral component of the region’s $8 billion network of transportation infrastructure. Performing a complete rehabilitation of this historic landmark so that it can continue to serve as a critical link between Missouri and Illinois for generations to come.

BSD is a key partner with CityArchRiver in current Gateway Arch improvements that will transform the visitor experience, not only at the Gateway Arch, but also on the St. Louis Riverfront and in downtown St. Louis.
