Abstract: Contact group orbits of the ODE $y"'=0$ in corresponding jet bundles are investigated. Explicit relations for the right-hand side of an arbitrary 3-order ODE necessary and sufficient for the existence of a contact transformation reducing this equation locally to the form $y"'=0$ are obtained.

Keywords: Ordinary differential equation, jet bundle, contact transformation, equivalence problem, linearizability.
