    The simplest way is to add waypoints, calculate a route and then use the cost and distance properties of the route. For example, from the VB reference:


    Dim objApp As New MapPoint.Application

    Dim objMap As MapPoint.Map

    Dim objRoute As MapPoint.Route


    'Set up application

    Set objMap = objApp.ActiveMap

    Set objRoute = objMap.ActiveRoute

    objApp.Visible = True

    objApp.UserControl = True


    'Add route stops and calculate the route

    objRoute.Waypoints.Add objMap.FindResults("Seattle, WA").Item(1)

    objRoute.Waypoints.Add objMap.FindResults("Redmond, WA").Item(1)

    objRoute.Calculate


    'Output the total length and cost of the route

    MsgBox "The route distance is: " + CStr(objRoute.Distance)

    MsgBox "Cost of route: $" + CStr(objRoute.Cost)
