The time has come, is what Tex Bernhardt says about the Houston City Council Vote for Taxi Fare increases which passed on March 01, 2012 by a vote of 12 for and 1 against. The rate goes into immediate effect. The Council stated since there had been no rate increase in over 7 years one was due the hard working cabbies. Tex Bernhardt says the taxi drivers deserved a pay increase with gas prices ballooning.
