(We are currently updating our vehicle to reflect our new, shorter name, BA Auto Care. Be on the lookout for the new shuttle vans... coming soon!.)
We are pleased to offer free courtesy shuttle services to surrounding communities. We run anywhere in an 8-mile radius from the shop. Common drop-off and pick-up points include: Columbia Gateway Drive, Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, Fort Meade, and the Savage MARC station.
Free Shuttle Service Hours
Drop Off Hours: 8:00 AM to 11:45 PM

Our first shuttle leaves at 8:00 AM each morning. The second shuttle usually leaves around 9:00 AM after the first shuttle run is finished. Actual departure time varies dependent on the number of customers and locations served. Please let the driver know if you will be needing pick-up services. If you are in need of pick-up services it is important that you notify us (or the driver) before 3PM on your service date to schedule your pick-up. This way, we can be sure to accommodate your request. (Please note, if a request is received after 3PM we will do our best to service you.)
Our courtesy van services areas within these boundaries: North to Ellicott City, South to North Laurel, East to NSA and West to Clarksville. If you are unsure as to whether your area is included just contact us or give us a call at 410-381-2700.
