The route are calculated according to the best time but the traffic is not considerated in real time so we often go through the 4 lanes, more quick in utopia land.

In reality it is very often better to move to the shortest route.
In addition, these detours significantly increase the price, making the service unmarketable.

Could we have an option to activate the calcul shortest and not least long?

Thank you for your answer.

Hi Fred,
unfortunately, Google Maps API does its own Historic calculation of the fastest route - they don't provide traffic information in real time because it is not possible as route calculations are for a future period.
They also don't provide a choice between shortest and fastest route.

For this reason, we have invented Fixed fare routes from Zone to Zone where the customer can actually type any address that belongs to a Zone and the booking is as seamless as an address to address but for a fixed fare instead of price per kilometre. You can read more about Zones here: https://booking.drivenot.com/en/documentation/63-zones

Hope this helps.
Kind regards.
