    In the conditional sentences, you said the company would not provide transport. So which is true?

    Logically, it needs to say "if I hadn't joined AMC..."

    I don't understand your last sentence one with "commute by".

    That company provides transport facility but it wasn't providing it to me.

    Are you saying that the company provides transport to work for some employees but you are not able/allowed to use it?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    This illustrates why we need to look at one sentence at a time. Anyhow, my interpretation of the sentence is that you wouldn't have been provided with company transport whether you worked there or not. I don't think that's what you want to say, but I could be wrong.

    Re: If I joined AMC I wouldn't be provided with the company transport (I would have t

    It is like saying: My company provides transport for its employees but I am not entitled to it.
    What is the point of making the statement?

    Yes, you are partially correct. I meant "I wouldn't have been provided with company transport, if I had joined that company so I didn't join that company".

    Look at post# 11. Yes, you are correct but company does provide transport facility for all of its employees.
