The Central Motor Bank, in Jefferson City, was one of the first drive-up banks built in the United States. The bank was ahead of its time when it opened in 1962, and now stands as testament to the bond that exists between transportation and commerce.

In this personal story we take a look at the founding of the Central Motor Bank and how its creation was a result of the automobile's rising prominence in American culture.

TRANSPORTATION AFFECTS EVERYONE.

Just getting to work every day requires a personal experience with transportation. With limited resources, Missouri faces many tough choices ahead when it comes to long-term transportation support.

FOUR KEY PILLARS

Through four key pillars of transportation-roads, bridges, safety and economic development-we feature business owners, workers, parents, students and travelers, all of whom have unique stories to tell about what matters most to them.

Roads

Roads keep all of us connected. MoDOT currently maintains 34,000 miles of roads, which means nearly all Missourians have a personal transportation experience when it comes to roads and highways.

Bridges

Drivers shouldn't have to second guess the safety of the bridges they cross everyday. Prioritizing bridge maintenance and replacement is important when it comes to the nearly 10,400 bridges MoDOT maintains.

Safety

When it comes to personal experiences with transportation, safety is key. MoDOT is committed to the safety of Missourians through road maintenance, innovation and continuing safety education.

Economic Development

Having a solid transportation system allows communities to grow. Roads and public transit allow for access to jobs and establishments. Good access also attracts more businesses to communities.
