The Rigi is car free.
Look at this thread, way down to the March 9 posts on this subject, for an easy scenic walk from Rigi Klm or Rigi Staffel to Rigi Staffel Höhe to Rigi Kaltbad..
www.wanderland.ch/en/w anderland.html and query for Rigi in the "Hiking in.." entry box.
The timetable can help you check out routes. Enter Rigi Kulm as your start point and Luzern ( or Küssnacht am Rigi) as your destination, and run through all the connections for a day. Expand each journey. You'll see the possible routes.
The timetable defaults to the fastest route, so you if you use Luzern as a test destination, or for that matter, possibly Küssnacht am Rigi, you can try a "via" to force routes through, for example, Weggis.
You certainly do not have to go and return by the same route. For example, you can go up from Vitznau (where you can park your car, or which you can access by bus or boat, and then come back down to Weggis, and take the bus along the lakeshore back to Vitznau ( or vice versa). There are also reasonable connections from Arth Goldau to Küssnacht am Rigi
You could leave your car at your vacation dwelling, too, and use public transport all the way and by various routes..
