Several options to embed a route map in a webpage:
1. Use open.mapquest.com, define a route and then get the embed code.
For example, this route: http://mapq.st/p3cUIJ . Hit the "send to" and
select the "your website" tab.  You will be given an embed code like
this:

<iframe style="height: 270px; width: 450px;"
src="http://open.mapquest.com/embed?hk=pX7XLK" marginwidth="0"
marginheight="0" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>

2.  Create a custom openlayers instance, some tips here:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Openlayers_Track_example

On a related note, I think a nice sub-project for everyone is to map
bus/jeepney routes in their own patches.
