Schlemeyer Airport

Transportation Resources

Odessa and the Permian Basin provide a gateway to the rest of the world. Whether traveling on the multiple state and national highways that intersect the area, or flying through our international airport, Odessa serves as your direct ticket to other major markets in Texas and around the world.

Within the city proper, multiple taxi and ride-sharing companies have recently staked claims here, in addition to well-conceived public transportation.

Odessa is centrally located to make transportation in and out of our city easy for business.  Access to an international airport, 10 minutes from the heart of the city, an Interstate that was built to handle the distribution needs to travel coast to coast, and rail to take us to any point on the map make Odessa the hub of opportunity for local, regional, national and international business.
