Return trip San Francisco?

Planning to attend a Roadscholar program and will be flying in and out of SFO. Combining with family visit there. Prefer public transit - train and-or bus. Timetables on Amtrak a bit confusing and seems like a long trip. Second choice is car rental as appears to be about a 7 hour drive. Any advice appreciated.

Amtrak is not that confusing. There's a couple of bus and train options each day that would cost about $56 each way and take 8 hours or so.

If you don't want to drive, you don't have to.
