Airbnb doesn't reimburse Uber to the Interview?

Have an onsite with Airbnb SF and was told by coordinator that they only reimburse 'ground transportation if you are 70 or more miles away from the office'.

How messed up is that? This is the first company I've had an onsite with that refused to reimburse uber to interview. Is this normal at other companies too?

I live in the bay but not in the city and public transport is slow and unreliable.

    Blind is amazing. One side of the spectrum boasts about sky high TCs and the other side cries over Uber fare! πŸ˜‚πŸΏ

      I think, it’s fair to ask for reimbursement. Why can’t a company pay for Uber/Lyft when they know driving to SF is a pain. Every company I have interviewed reimburses, even Intel and Oracle. The recruitment process should be improved

      It’s a 7 minute walk. Is this worth posting over?

      What if bart gets delayed? Medical emergency?

      You should bring this up in the cross-functional interviews.

      The commute should be the least stressful part during the interview
