Public Transit Services in Midland and Odessa

It is the mission of Midland Odessa Urban Transit District (EZ-Rider) to provide safe, reliable, affordable, and efficient public transportation with quality customer service to the Midland Odessa urban area.

New Hours, New EZ-Connect Route


Need more time? You've got it! On August 1, 2022, EZ-Rider extended its evening service hours until 7:10 p.m. Now you have an extra hour to ride the bus for work, school, shopping, or whatever you may need.


At the same time, we've changed our EZ-Connect commuter service to be a single-ride connection between Midland and Odessa. Now beginning and ending at the Downtown Transfer Plazas in each city, EZ-Connect will get you from one city to the other without you having to change buses! Don't worry--we'll still drop you off at the EZ-Rider office, DPS, or the airport; just let your driver know.


EZ-Connect hours have changed, too. While it'll still begin with the city routes at 6:15 am and end at the new time of 7:10 pm, it will take a break from 10:10 am to 3:10 pm. See our "Routes" page for more information.
