Midland is conveniently located on Interstate 20, halfway between Fort Worth and El Paso. We proudly boast the closest airport to Big Bend National Park, Midland International Airport. The great thing about Midland is that there is virtually no drive time to get from one part of town to another. Many professionals traveling to Midland for an extended period of time will rent a car, but that’s not necessary. Midland is served by several shuttle services, taxis, and EZ-Rider public transportation with six fixed bus routes through the city.
