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>

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.

However, you can make your own, if you do a "view source" on this page: http://aplus.rs/adxmenu/examples/hbt/
That's what it's there for.

Tweak as you want.

it's CSS
