You could also try CloudMade Routing API.
It is based on OSM data, so when you add roads, it will give you more exact
This routing API is very fast, simple, and has some convenient options like
result type (the fastest or the shortest), transport type (bicycle,
pedestrian, car) and transit points.
You could see the results here
Just press "Get direction" and set points "A" and "B".
There are bindings of Routing API in Java, Ruby and Python languages. More
programming languages are coming soon.
