‘Lyfting’ student success: Ride-sharing at Harper puts academics in the fast lane

She’s not alone. According to the nationwide 2021 Trellis Student Financial Wellness Survey, students who don’t get transportation subsidies and can’t access reliable, safe transportation are less likely to earn degrees. What’s more:

  • More than 20% of students with a car don’t believe it’s reliable.
  • Most students with unreliable cars are first-generation students, male, Black, or caring for children.
