Transportation[edit]

The city lies in between the main Delhi - Mumbai line. More than 1000 travelers commute daily from Lakheri to Kota, Jaipur and many other large cities by local train like Dehradun express, Avadh express, Firozpur janta express train. But city is ignored by Indian railway not to provided any super fast train to halt at the station. In the same way, previously bus service in the city is also in poor condition as Rajasthan Roadways has no interest in the city and has no routine bus service no express, silver line or blue line buses. Because of this the private buses charge more than the required fare and also take more time to reach the destination.

But recently this city got new “Mega Highway” road so here is very good transportation connectivity. Rajasthan State Road Transportation Corporation Bus services are available for Kota, Bundi and Jaipur. One RSRTC bus service is from Kota to Alwar, Alwar to Kota via Lakheri.
