Nice catch; I don't think I've heard this.  AFAIK there are no examples with the verb {lup} "tansport" (presumably by vehicle) - not to be confused with {jol/Qol} "transport" (via teleporter).  but there are a few sentences with {lupwI'} "jitney, bus", {ra'wI' lupwI'} "taxi" (TNK), {lupwI' mIr} "train" (TNK) and {lupDujHom} "shuttlecraft".
