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!

The Google MapAPI (if that is what you are using) has functionality to do this.

Take a look at this URL

https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/services?csw=1#DirectionsResults

And specifically this one

https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/distancematrix

For more information on how this works.
