Besides the toll free road, Seremban 2 also provides connectivity and accessibility through a series of well-networked expressways for its residents.

- An escape from Klang Valley
Currently at 70% completion and is expected to house 100,000 residents upon maturity, Seremban 2 has seen an increase in demand for properties from Klang Valley homebuyers. At present, 20% of their total residents originated from the greater Klang Valley area, and the numbers have been increasing steadily by the year as people are seeking to enjoy lower living cost and a balanced lifestyle.
Young community members have direct access to a number of quality educational and instructional options, as there are a total of 5 national schools, 2 Chinese primary school, 2 colleges and 1 international school in Seremban 2.
Due to a shift in lifestyle priority especially for modern families, the younger generations are pursuing more conducive and tranquil living environments to raise their families. As a result, many Seremban 2 residents have chosen to make the township their homes while commuting daily to Kuala Lumpur for work and school, which is eased by the accessibility and connectivity of the township to other locations.

Recreational facilities are some of the biggest highlights of Seremban 2. In fostering healthy community-centric activities, the township features 45 acres of dedicated park space sprawled with family-friendly facilities and recreational amenities.
