But the city is ignored by Indian Railway which does not provide any super fast train to halt at the station in past but now gradually the superfast trains start stopping here like Kota Shriganganagar SF, Jodhpur Indore SF. 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 and 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.

In the past decade the city has emerged as a popular coaching destination for competitive exams preparation and for profit educational services. The education sector of Kota has become a major contributor to the city's economy.[17] Kota is popularly referred to as "the coaching capital of India".[18][19][20] Over 1.5 lakh students from all over the country flock every year towards the city for preparation of various exams such as IIT-JEE, NEET-UG and AIIMS etc.[21][22][23][24][25] Many hostels and PGs are located in Kota near the vicinity of coaching centres for students. Students live here for 2–3 years and prepare for the exams. In the past few years, reports of students committing suicide in the city have increased.
