In Puerto Rico, yess, you need your own transportation. There's not public transportation and the areas in the field, specially in the center of the island are far one to another.
If adequate public transportation can get you to where you need to go, it's not necessary. Major metropolitan areas like Chicago can be covered with public transit. Cars are required if you cannot reach your destination by any other means at the time required.
Yes auto transporatation is necessary and full expense reimbursement is provided
