This might be a double definition.

'bearing the cost' is the first definition.
'carriage' can be an answer for 'bearing' (someone's stance or posture). I am not sure about the 'the cost' bit.

'transport' is the second definition.

(Other definitions for carriage that I've seen before include "Posture or train compartment" , "Section of a train" , "Buggy" , "Railway passenger coach" , "Vehicle - bearing" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
