Probably the train is the best way to get to Assisi especially since you will be so close to the train station. The trip will take about 2 and 1/2 hours. But, I guess you could get a bus from there too but I still would recommend the train.
Few will argue that Assisi isn't a marvelous place to visit and to see the art and church there. But it makes for a very long day trip. Have you considered going to Orvieto instead? It is about an hour on the train or bus and there are marvelous monuments, churches etc. to see in that marvelous city. The Duomo there is wonderful. If you take the bus, don't forget that traffic can get heavy in Italy.
