  • On weekdays, morning train arrival times at the New Hamburg station are: 3:49am, 7:50am, and 8:21am.
  • On Weekends, morning train arrival times at the New Hamburg station: 3:41am and 8:20am.

Unfortunately, there is no taxi stand at the New Hamburg station. If you decide to disembark at New Hamburg, we strongly advise you to call and reserve a taxi at least 30 minutes to one hour in advance of your arrival to pick you up at the station when your train arrives.
