Commuter Rail

The rail connection was first constructed in the late 1890s as a stop on the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore main line, and until today, the Seremban railway station still serves as one of the major stops along the line. Seremban station also serves as the southern terminal of the Keretapi Tanah Melayu electrified commuter network, KTM Komuter, which links the town to Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Valley on Rawang-Seremban Line. Seremban station also serves as the terminal for the Seremban - Port Dickson railway line, one of Malaysia's oldest railway lines, built during the colonial era. However, today, this route is less frequently used. [Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad [] ]


;Trunk Roads

The Federal Route 1, the oldest major roadway that connects the major towns and cities of the West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia runs through Seremban. It connects Seremban with neighbouring towns such as Rembau and Tampin to the south and Kajang, Selangor to the north. Seremban also provides access to the towns of Kuala Klawang and Kuala Pilah to the east and the well-known coastal town of Port Dickson to the west.


*North-South Expressway: The North-South Highway (Lebuhraya Utara-Selatan, PLUS) runs through the town. Seremban is well-connected by road to other nearby Malaysian cities such as Malacca and Johor Bahru to the south and Kuala Lumpur to the north. Drivers can exit to Seremban town via 3 interchanges: (from north to south) Seremban, Port Dickson and Senawang. As of year 2005 until 2007, PLUS will be expanding the 2-lane Seremban section highway to 3 lanes in order to ease traffic during peak hours and festive seasons.

*Seremban-Port Dickson Highway: The Seremban-Port Dickson Highway, which ends in Seremban, provides a faster but a tolled alternative route to Port Dickson. The highway connects Port Dickson , Lukut and Bandar Springhill to Seremban.

The Public Works Department has also begun the construction of a Seremban Ring Road which will help alleviate traffic flow in and out of the town centre, which is frequently congested during the peak hours. One of the phases of the project includes widening and building a viaduct on Jalan Rasah (completed) and Sikamat to Senawang, the main road connecting residential areas along the Seremban-Port Dickson route with the town centre.


Seremban bus service is rather poor compared to other cities around the country before the bus network revamp, resulting heavy congestion in Seremban all time. The main bus terminal in Seremban is situated at Terminal One Mall. It is located on Jalan Sungai Ujong, which provides bus services to residents from outlying towns in Negeri Sembilan, such as Bahau, Gemas and Tampin. There are a frequent bus services by companies such as SKS Transnasional and Suasana Edaran from Seremban to Kuala Lumpur and Malacca. The municipal council also offers free shuttle bus service.

Major bus companies that operates in Seremban includes:
*SKS Transnasional
*Cepat Express
*Suasana Edaran

Port Infrastructure


Negeri Sembilan is one of the two states in Malaysia that are not accessible via air transportation (Perlis being the other state). However the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) is less than a 30 minutes drive from Seremban, essentially making the airport closer to Seremban rather than Kuala Lumpur.
