In the crystal structure of the title compound, C6H7N·CH4N2O, the 2-methyl­pyridine and urea mol­ecules are linked via N—H⋯O and N—H⋯N hydrogen bonds, forming ribbons extending along the a axis. The dihedral angle between the 2-methyl­pyridine and urea mean planes is 89.09 (9)°. The methyl group shows rotational disorder wherein the H atoms are located over two sets of sites with equal occupancies.
