Is there any fare estimator around at sensible costs (or free) to add to a website?

What about the flagfall?
My formula is (number of miles - the distance covered by the flagfall) X rate per mile + flagfall.
Of course this does not allow for any waiting time.

There are plenty of apps out there that claim to do this. Add a link to your website to one of these and Robert is mothers brother.
