Drop up menu

I would like to make this menu "drop up" instead of "drop down", is this possible?

<select onchange="calcRoute();" id="travel-mode-input" style="margin-left:5px;">
      <option value="DRIVING" selected="selected">By car</option>
      <option value="BICYCLING">Bicycling</option>
      <option value="WALKING">Walking</option>
    </select>

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Form elements, such as radio buttons, check boxes and select menus are browser/OS dependent.  

The way a menu "drops" is dependent solely on where the page is positioned when the menu is drawn.  If your page is all the way at the top and your select box is also at the top, it will automatically drop "down".  

However, if your page is near the bottom and so is the select box, then the menu will expand "up".  

The only thing you may be able to do, if you really want/need to, is use Jquery or Javascript.  You can then restyle your form elements to look and function the way you want.
