Advancing Transportation Solutions for Community College Students

In collaboration with the City University of New York (CUNY), we are excited to launch a transportation project aiming at supporting the educational journey of college students. 

We will conduct a randomized controlled trial involving approximately 750 students from two urban community colleges, the majority of whom rely on public transportation for their commute. After randomly assigning these students into treatment and control groups, we will furnish those in the treatment group with complimentary Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) MetroCards. Our objective is to rigorously evaluate the causal effects of transportation support on students' academic achievements. We seek to inform state and federal policymakers and to assist practitioners at resource-limited institutions by providing a clearer understanding of the independent impact that transportation support has on student outcomes..
