the keys to this working are:
1- Select it in a form element on the checkout page.

2- capture the selection in hidden form element on the confirm page.

3- capture the selection in a session variable on the confirm page.

4- Use the session variable value in the triggers for the shipping rules.

<select name="shipType" id="shipType">
<option value="Local Pickup">Local Pickup</option>
<option value="UPS">UPS</option>
</select>




on the confirm page, create a hidden form element of the same name, and set it to capture the value posted from the checkout page:

php:
<input name="shipType" type="hidden" id="shipType" value="<?php echo((isset($_POST["shipType"]))?$_POST["shipType"]:""?>" />
