Distance Calculator In Search Results

My web developer does not know of a way to calculate driving distance between the street address of a client and multiple service providers. The closest they can get is linear distance between two gps coordinates that represent the street address. Is there a more accurate method to calculate driving distance or do most websites display linear distance? If the alternative methods involve costs, or other risk, please let me know. Thanks!
