Is it cheaper than Uber?

I saw a comparison that had an Uber at $27 and a Waymo at $4.50 for same route and time

Yeah but they’re both subsidising with VC money, just Uber less so now. It’s not a fair market comparison yet.

Would the UBER drive be paid more than $22.50 in this case?

Drivers for uber and Lyft do NOT make the money you pay to the company. It's not related at all. I drive Lyft and I get between 15%-35% of the fare. I've made $7.00 on an $80 ride before.

Difference should be more as the notmal car is cheaper

I imagine the driver's salary is a big part of the cost of running a taxi + Waymo needs to have attractive fees to get the maximum people having their first driverless taxi experience so they have to be way cheaper than Uber.
