    The public transportation in Surabaya is quite varied, whether bus or minibus (called bemo). But that mass transportation is not interesting for Surabaya citizens to use. One problem is that the information about public transportation is not available completely. Department of Transportation of Surabaya already has a website, but not yet contain complete information on maps and public transportation routes. This study was conducted to address the lack of route information of public transportation in Surabaya by creating an online guide that can be accessed by passengers to get complete information on maps and travel routes for public transportation which is made interactive, simple, accessible and appropriate transport adapted to the conditions in the city of Surabaya. This research will develop the responsive websites that can be used on various types of smartphones and tablets using Android operating systems. Maps and routes are obtained from Department of Transportation of Surabaya. Survey was done by distributing questionnaires to determine the needs of the passengers of public transportation. Maps and route are developed using OpenStreetMap, Ajax, Javascript, XML, OpenLayer, PostgreSQL, PostGIS, Apache and PHP programming language. Passengers simply entering the destination of his journey, could be the name of the street or landmarks and public places. The system will automatically choose the alternative route of bemo they should take, including the routes to reach the destination. The information includes the connecting route of bemo if the routes need to be connected by more than one route of bemo. Also the information regarding the price to be paid. From the test results, responsive website can adapt to a wide range of smartphones with a variety of screen sizes, from 3.5 inch to 5 inch smartphones and 7 inch tablets. However, there is a little difficulties for 3.5 inch smartphones to touch the button on the screen because the screen size is too small.
