Another althernative to get to Negeri Sembilan from Kuala Lumpur is by rail. The KTM Commuter trains serve the KL-Seremban route very regularly. The journey takes about 1 hour 15 minutes. You could board the train at KL sentral and alight the train at the Seremban Railway station.

This mode of transportation is, in my personal opinion, a fairly hassle free and comfortable way to travel to Seremban, Negeri Sembilan. The Commuter trains are air-conditioned and provides a fairly comfortable ride. Besides that, it's also very economical. The fares from KL Sentral to the Seremban Railway Station only costs RM 6.00.
