Apparently not. It appears you'd have to take a bus from Midland to Dallas, then another from Dallas to Lubbock. This probably would be more expensive than flying Southwest Airlines (which probably would take the same route): www.southwest.com

There is a Shuttle Service in Midland to other areas. Know nothing about them:

Here are more shuttles from Midland Airport:

Abid--

My malware software prevents me from looking at the aforementioned link, but when I did my research, there was no intercity public transportation between the two cities. I would imagine (but am not certain) that the shuttle would only provide service to/from nearby airports and other destination locations.

Hi Gene! Thanks for the input. I did my side of the research and came with the following options

1. Take a cab to big spring (110$) and then take greyhound from there (18$)= 128 $.total duration 2.45 hours

2. Take a cab to Lamesa (120$) and then take a cab (!30$) this option saves 45 minutes. duration = 2 hours

3. Take bus to dallas (40 $) take another to lubbock (35$)= 75 $ cheapest but will take 12 hours!!!!. (scary)

4. Take south western flight = 210 $.

I think i will go with the second option as it is cheapest as well as saves time. Thanks again for your input.

One last suggestion, if you haven't already checked it out: You might look into renting a car in Midland and dropping it in Lubbock. There will be "drop charges", but they may not be too bad. Good luck!

Okay, let me see if I have this correct. You are willing to take 17 hours of rides to go 123 miles from Midland to Lubbock which is 150 mile distance?

I gave you a list above of driving services. Just now I picked one, Red Raider Rides. His website had a calculator. It said for $123 one of his drivers will take you on the 2 hour drive to Lubbock. Most of the others on the list would also love to have your money. Business can't be that great these days.

http://www.redraiderrides.com

Call him or them or email them and tell them what you want to do. I bet you'll get that 2 hour ride ! ! !

Thanks in advance for your consideration of this suggestion. I'd take 2 hours over 17 hours and hundreds of dollars in fees anyday.

Georgetowngal--

Perhaps the OP had the same problem opening some of the links that I did, and that is the reason he was unable to find "...a list above of driving services." I was unable to open any such list, but with the new link you provided, hopefully he can reach them.

Tks. In post #3 the tinyurl link was a long list for shuttles from Midland. No clue as to their ability to go on a 150 mile drop. Red Raider Rides was the only one I opened. Here are the rest:
