Its a reliability issue in regards to public transit, also a potential scheduling issue. I've had folks work for me that are reliant on public transit and not living in a super public transit friendly area, its often been an issue. Train running late, so are they. An issue pops up at the end of the day? They can't help because they need to catch the train and there isn't another one for 45 minutes or something like that. If you leave your house 5 minutes late with a car, youre usually 5-10 minutes late getting to work....if youre 5 minute late for the bus, youre 30 minutes late to work. But I wouldn't not hire someone over it.
