Yes, as an independent contractor, your transportation expenses to client homes are allowable business deductions. 

Here is where you enter in TurboTax On Line Self Employed:

Federal

Income & Expenses

Scroll to self-employment income and expenses

Scroll to business travel

Add each type of travel and your total expenses
