The Story of About Town…
When their children entered high school, the Gerharts didn’t worry about soon becoming empty-nesters. Instead, they began to cultivate old friendships and celebrate their new-found independence.
Their first experience with limousines was in the winter of 1988, when a friend arranged a limousine to take the two couples to a Philadelphia trade show and out to dinner afterwards. The experience was so convenient and relaxing that the Gerharts decided that this may be an excellent way to make a living!
“We began to think it would be a good idea to own our own limousine and just hire a chauffeur,” said Carol. So in 1989 the Gerharts bought their first Lincoln Limousine for their own personal use.
“After investigating Public Service Commission licensing and other costs, we knew the car had to work, so we advertised for the prom season that year,” said Carol, “and were booked solid. Everything just took off from there. Before we knew it, we had bought two more limousines and a limo-van for nights out and airport service, and couldn’t keep up with the demand.”
About Town Limousine has expanded over the years to include private car service to airports, birthdays, school parties and bringing new babies home from the hospital. We have recently expanded our fleet to include a party bus that is perfect for larger groups heading out for a night on the town!

We started serving the Cecil County, Maryland area with one 6-passenger limousine in 1989, and today we are serving the Tri-State area with 17 vehicles: Lincoln Town Car, sedans, Expedition SUV, 14-passenger vans, stretch limousines for 8 passengers, a 10-passenger stretch Navigator SUV, 14-passenger Limo-Coaches (Party Buses) and our newest addition, a 14-passenger Jumbo Transit with 6.5’ headroom. We have built the business by providing superior customer service, where a live person answers the phone 24 hours a day, ready to answer questions and quote services.
Our vehicles are available 24 hours a day, and short-notice requests are never a problem. We train our chauffeurs to provide safe, prompt, courteous, personal service, while respecting the privacy of our clients. We are not just a transportation service, we are part of the community and pride ourselves on welcoming new residents to the area by offering referrals to other quality local services, from restaurants to hair and nail salons, to attorneys and home and auto repairs, or any other referrals our clients want or need.
Think of About Town Limousine Service when you are planning a bachelor or bachelorette party, wedding, bringing the new baby home from the hospital, special birthday, anniversary, prom, or going to a medical appointment. We go above and beyond to accommodate every request. We are very proud to be providing limousine service for second generation proms and weddings for the children of those who we provided service for years ago!
