Travel from Johor Bahru to Seremban by Bus
Travelling from Johor Bahru or JB, as many people like to call it, to Seremban is actually not a very long trip.

At JB, you will start your trip at Larkin station with a bus service provider called Plusliner, who will drop you off at T1erminal One, Seremban. Plusliner offers 5-7 trips daily at an affordable price of RM28.40 per seat.
