I’m applying to this job and they asked if I have reliable transportation? I’ve seen this on a bunch of different applications in the past, why do they ask this?

This is a common question on job applications. The point behind it is to make sure that attendance at your position, if you take it, will be what is expected. Many people are terminated from positions because of poor attendance, and this is one easy way to ensure that getting to and from work will not be a problem. It is also a way to gauge your responsibility.
