CAB (cont.) Memphis Chamber of Commerce, a sign of commitment to the community. Area residents who frequently


need a ride will no doubt be familiar with Razorback Cab. The longtime ride provider recently closed shop but has now reemerged with a new owner applying for a certificate to operate the revived cab company throughout the city.

Terry Hardin, nephew of the previous owner, also appeared before city council to apply for his taxi license.

'My uncle had Razorback cab for 28 years and he recently retired,' said Hardin. 'So I was seeing if i could put in a taxi service.'

Councilman Wayne Croom asked Hardin about using the same vehicles and equipment.

'Some of the different vehicles and the radios, things he no longer uses,' said Hardin. 'One or two the previous drivers have contacted me and said they'd like to work' Hardin, who resides in Tyronza, told city council he intended to start with three cabs and possibly expand to five if demand proved strong enough. He announced hours of operation as 5 a.m. to 10 p.m., and may be reached at (870) 635-6984.

The increase in the taxi options for city residents goes hand-in-hand with West Memphis Mayor Marco McClendon't initiative to revive mass transit in the city and get West Memphis on the move.
