Public transit from Oakland to Muir Woods?

I don't have a car and want to go to Muir Woods.

I was reading up on how to get from Oakland to Muir Woods without a car, and found some suggestions from another TripAdvisor forum's posts (unfortunately the forum was closed due to inactivity). So I'm just posting my findings in case anyone would like this info in the future). Please add to it for us car-free travelers!

JQRtraveler Thanks for taking the time to post this. Most of the folks (not all but most) who visit the forum are short term visitors to SF or the Bay Area so I would not suggest they look at the clipper card as an option. It will help locals with the card to commute on some legs but not visitors.
