More trains and buses will be running in Auckland when new drinking laws begin next week.
The special early trains on Saturday and Sunday are a trial to coincide with the sweeping changes the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act will bring from December 18.
Auckland Transport says bus services will also run all night on the Northern Busway - but a final decision on whether they are permanent will depend on demand.
Thousands of revellers are expected in the central city on December 20, the last Friday before Christmas and the first after the changes come into effect.
Several sources within the hospitality industry have told the Herald they are concerned about transport options available for what is considered the busiest night of the year.

Western cultures are "besotted with alcohol" and are failing to address the problems it causes, particularly in relation to women.
That was the message given at this morning's launch in Auckland of a policy briefing paper which aims to tackle the relationship between women and alcohol.
Alcohol Healthwatch and Women's Health Action have published the paper, which will be sent to all MPs and Government Ministers in the next week, in a bid to influence future policy on alcohol.
"We are operating in a strategy vacuum," said Rebecca Williams, from Alcohol Healthwatch.
