For centuries, the village was a small hamlet with a bridge crossing the Biber river. In 1877, a train station of the railway line Wädenswil–Einsiedeln was built. Fourteen years later, the Südostbahn (SOB) established the line St. Gallen–Schwyz, and Biberbrugg became an important railway node. Around the train station, a settlement in the municipality Einsiedeln was established on the southern side of the Biber river. Later, the motorway St. Gallen–Rapperswil–Schwyz–Ingenbohl on the western side of the river was built; this part of the village belongs to the municipality of Feusisberg.
Biberbrugg is a nodal point of the Südostbahn's Voralpen Express and of the motorway between St. Gallen and Schwyz. The village's railway station is also a stop of the Zürich S-Bahn on the lines S13 to Wädenswil and S40 to Rapperswil.
