What are you refering by “it”?

Vertex-transitivity means that any vertex of the object can be sent to any other vertex by a symmetry of the same object. A regular triangle is vertex-transitive by itself; the surrounding faces are irrelevant. The snub cube is vertex-transitive; this makes no reference to its triangular faces.
