Most of Seremban bound expres buses nowadays depart from the makeshift terminal next to the Klang river - between Pasar Seni LRT station and Kuala Lumpur railway station/Dayabumi building. It iss better to go here then Puduraya since there are more choice of buses at regular interval (every 15-30mins) departing from here.
The railway station was constructed between 1904 to 1910 and is one of the main on the north-south line of KTM's intercity trains service from Pandang Besar (in the nroith) to Singapore (in the south)... There is also a line to Port Dickson which has since been discontinued but the state authorities are looking into restoring it...
The railway station has a distinctive white clock tower atop the roof of the building, topped by an onion dome... The top of the roof is adorned by wooden carvings and small pinnacles on its upper ends... The station underwent extensive remodeling in 1994 for launching of the Rawang-Seremban stretch of the KTM Komuter commuter train services in 1995... The renovation saw the retrofitting of new KTM Komuter facilities into the station, as well as the raising of all platforms in the station to support easier access in and out of KTM locomotives and coaches...
The Seremban Terminal One is the transportation hub for Seremban... Buses and taxis are available from this hub to various towns within Malaysia... The hub is the most important point for travel to Port Dickson and Kuala Lumpur... There are also buses to Johor Baru, Melaka and even the KLIA via Sepang... Transport to the north and east coast are also available...

Seremban downtown is small enough to walkabout.
It is also the best way to appreciate the old narrow street and prewar buildings.
