The Midland Odessa Urban Transit District, known as EZ-Rider, was established in 2003 under Texas Transportation Code Chapter 458 to operate transit services for the Midland and Odessa urbanized areas (UZAs) and therefore receives state funding. EZ-Rider currently operates fixed-route bus service and ADA paratransit service in Midland and Odessa, and the EZ-Connect commuter service connecting the two cities. The service area is contained within the city limits of Midland & Odessa. According to the U.S. Census 2010, the service area covers 92.3 percent of the population and 77.8 percent of the land area of the Midland UZA as well as 78.7 percent of the population and 47.1 of the land area of the Odessa UZA. Adjacent counties and rural areas of Ector, Martin, and Midland Counties are served by the rural transit district West Texas Opportunities, Inc.
The Midland Odessa Urban Transit District Board is the governing body of EZ-Rider. The board is composed of six members each representing the cities and the local MPO, appointed by the city councils of Midland and Odessa, respectively, and three ex oficio members.
