There will be extra train and bus service this weekend, in light of Pitchfork Music Festival and other major Chicago events, the Chicago Transit Authority announced Wednesday.

The Pink, Green, Red and Blue Line will run longer trains throughout the weekend, and there will be extra Ashland buses running to accommodate Pitchfork attendees.

Here's what's specifically happening:

* The Pink Line will run longer trains from 1 p.m. to midnight on Friday, Saturday an Sunday. Pink Line trains will also operate more frequently from 8:30 p.m. through 11:30 p.m.

* The Green Line will run longer trains from 1 to 10:30 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

* The Red Line will run longer trains through midnight on Friday and Saturday, and from 5 to 7 a.m. on Sunday.

* The Blue Line will run longer trains until 11:30 p.m. on Friday, and until midnight on Saturday and Sunday.

* The Ashland (#9) bus route will run more buses than usual for an hour after Pitchfork ends each night.

You can also bike to and from Pitchfork for free on Saturday and Sunday, courtesy of Divvy. Basically, if you can't get yourself to Pitchfork, it's your own dang fault.
