ride-sharing puzzles

We love creating puzzles.

This is a new one to create awareness on how much people can save money simply by sharing rides with fellow travellers.

Take this one :

Betty, Charlie and Dan hop into the same taxi to share their ride and the fare to their homes.

The fare for the segments is as given below. If Dan is the last to be dropped home, what is the minimum he would pay based on a fair-split ?

How much would each be saving if they traveled on their own in individual taxis ?

What is the total saving in the ecosystem ?
