bus question

We are buying the Innsbruck Card. Just to make sure I have this correct.. if I want to leave the train station around 9 am and go to the Innsbrucker Nordkettenbahnen cable cars, I walked across the street to the bus station and can take either Bus R or H and then transfer to Bus J (19 minute total bus ride) to get there? It seems like there is a bus about every 10 minutes from the station?

Also, if the weather is not clear and we want to just go to the city center instead, we can take bus F or M or 501 or tram 3 from the train station?

The train station actually is located in the city center why you can easily walk to most sights in the old town. In my opinion walking would even be easier because the routings of buses and trams - especially while moving through the central part - are a little confusing for a first-time user.

Do you want to start your Nordkette mountain trip at Innsbruck Congress (behind Hofburg Palace), where the cable car to the valley station of the cableway in Hungerburg leaves from, or do you want to go directly to the aforementioned valley station and skip the cable car ride?

I want to take the cable car up. Is that what most people do? Is there a preference?

The Innsbruck Card covers the full trip from Innsbruck's center to the top mountain station at Hafelekar, all three sections, so start and end your trip at Innsbruck Congress.
