By busBuses from Thailand, Singapore & other towns of Malaysia stop at the "Terminal One" bus station at the town center. There are also buses from here linking other towns within Negeri Sembilan state. There is a shopping mall by the same name beside this bus station.

By carDriving around Seremban is quite tough during the day with constant streams of busy traffic, but not as bad as Kuala Lumpur or Penang Island due its volume. Road traffic volume increases during the weekends and public holidays as people who work in nearby major cities return. Traffic gets less busy away from the Seremban and Port Dickson toll plazas (towards Seremban 2)and Lake Gardens (Taman Tasik). Roads that should be avoided during peak hour include Jalan Tuanku Antah (main road to Senawang), Jalan Rasah (main road to Port Dickson toll plaza), Jalan Sungai Ujong (main road to Seremban toll plaza) as well as the main city centre itself.
On footSeremban is, to a certain extent, pedestrian unfriendly, due to a lack of pedestrian crossings and designated pedestrian paths especially in the Seremban town. There are also few facilities for the disabled. Going on foot is an unpopular means of getting around in Seremban.
By bicycleFor similar reasons, cycling is also an unpopular means of getting around. Cycling is uncomfortable can be dangerous due to the narrow road lanes. Riding bicycles is only recommended for recreational purposes. But neither of the main parks in Seremban, the Lake Gardens (in front of State Assembly building) or the City Park (behind the fire station in Seremban 2), cater to cyclists.
