Does transportation count toward activity hours

So on the common app it ask for the hours you spend doing an activity per week. For one of my activites, I spend about an hour just to get to the place and back. Would this hour for transportation count towards the time I spend doing this activity?

Likely no as you going to school doesn’t count as school. But if during the hour ride there and back you do tasks relating to the activity then it will count.

I’m part of a youth group so if we carpool together then the youth group would be meeting and doing youth group things. But if I drive there it doesn’t count.

Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification as I’d be happy to help clarify!
