It's a genuinely useful piece of public transport. I use it quite often for leisure purposes and my mates from around the country are always fascinated what a great service it is. Every time I use it there's a decent load of passengers too.

Don't know. Don't care. 
It provides a link that nothing else does or seems willing to provide. 

Said it before, but I do think the river should be utilised more.

Numbers carried prior to covid.
420,000 was it's lowest number prior to covid hitting. 
Assuming half of those would be or could be using the tunnel via car, I'd say it's in everyone's interests to keep the ferry going.
