    BART will run longer trains and additional event trains this weekend for those traveling to Outside Lands music festival and the San Francisco Pistahan Festival, according to BART.

    There will also be no single-track service along BART lines, which is expected most weekends as a part of rebuilding efforts.

    To accommodate the festivals, BART will be running longer trains during non-commute hours Friday afternoon and most hours Saturday. BART will still run on a Sunday schedule, however after 7 p.m. additional event trains will be deployed for people leaving Outside Lands.

    Festivalgoers are advised to get off at Civic Center Station and take MUNI's N Judah rail like or 5R Fulton Rapid bus line. Both lines will have additional service, according to MUNI.

    The additional service will also benefit those going to the San Francisco Pistahan parade, which starts at Market Street 11 a.m. Saturday.

    For those who plan to take the train to the Oakland Coliseum on Saturday night to see the Oakland Raiders play the Los Angeles Rams, BART plans to run longer trains on the Richmond-Warm Springs and Daly City-Pleasanton lines. Additional event trains will also be deployed on those lines.

    After this weekend, BART will see several weekends of single-tracking and track shutdowns as it rebuilds and repairs miles of trackway.
