To understand your sentence better, suppose that 'She' means 'Jessica'-(name of a girl). Now, your sentence will be "Jessica depends (relies) on Jessica's (her) sister to drive Jessica to school.". So, it means "Jessica's sister is driving Jessica to school."

I'd assume that her sister (female 1) drives her (female 2) to school - two women. But it depends on the surrounding sentences. If we had more information such as, "my friend (female 1) has a daughter (female 2) but no car so she (female 1) relies on her sister (female 3) to drive her (female 2) to school. Context is key. :)
