Surrounding Seri Kembangan are the townships of Sri Petaling, Bukit Jalil, Puchong, Bandar Kinrara, Cyberjaya, and Putrajaya, making it well-connected, both in terms of highways and public transport

Not only is the city located near the northern end of the PLUS Expressway Southern Route, it is also strategically located at the intersection of three tolled highways, namely PLUS, the Sungai Besi Expressway, and the Kuala Lumpur–Seremban Expressway. Also nearby are the Maju Expressway, as well as the interchange with KESAS and MRR2.

Additionally, it's easy to get in and out of Seri Kembangan via public transport. The Sungai Besi LRT Station is about 4km north, and the MRT Line 2 (Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya line) also runs through Seri Kembangan.

Despite this, many Malaysians are under the impression that Seri Kembangan is "so far away lah!", making them hesitant to buy a home and settle down in the area.
