    Transportation costs simply should not be that high.

    I highly doubt ANY student has that amount of discretionary income. I surely didn’t. On average you worked about 30 hours a week for the year [this takes into account summer jobs, no work over holidays and slow periods]. The job I had pays about $12/hour now. $12 x 30 hours x 52 weeks = $18,720 a year BEFORE taxes. Clearly something is wrong with your numbers! $4,000 only on a car? Umm there are people with $750/month car payments!
