- We will know that taking the most efficient (direct) route is what makes upfront pricing a success for Uber.
So take the THIRD most efficient route instead! Gives you a better chance at getting a fairer slice of the pie.
Here are some examples.

Update: I noticed that AnatolianTiger got his tolls paid ($13.64) on top of the percentage cut from the upfront fare where he attempted to rip off the pax but only got paid $84 instead of $124 (Airport to Parramatta via LCT & M2).
So this Waze strategy needs to also factor in taking toll roads if it reduces the time of the trip as the tolls will be paid regardless of whether it was the best route.
For the time being keep periodically monitoring your cut by just taking 77.5% or 72.5% from the upfront fare to see if it matches.
One day it will stop matching, more often than not. That's when this Waze strategy will need to be used.
Get in the habit early?
