Ex­pect more train ser­vices dur­ing ‘‘March Mad­ness’’ this year. Auck­land Trans­port will be in­creas­ing train ser­vices dur­ing this busy pe­riod. The timetable change from March 12 adds 1,194 ex­tra spa­ces dur­ing the morn­ing peak. South­ern line gets 398 while the east­ern line will get 796 ex­tra spa­ces. ‘‘We know the num­ber of pub­lic trans­port pas­sen­gers peaks in March as stu­dents head back to their stud­ies, schools are in ter­mand lower num­bers of peo­ple are on leave. It’s known as ‘March Mad­ness’ and since March last year we’ve worked hard to get more ser­vices on some of our busiest routes,’’ group man­ager of AT Metro op­er­a­tions Brendon Main says.
