Prior to the pandemic, I also commute between from Point Richmond back to SF (when I don't feel like paying for the ferry or BART). Whenever I was on it, I see very few cyclists...even fewer pedestrians. I always felt like there's not enough demand to keep it open (as compared to GG Bridge or even the Bay Bridge Eastern Span).
You can do it now with a short ferry hop from Treasure Island.
