Officials cleared out the station, and called in the RCMP around 9:30 p.m. PT, after a passenger found a 35-centimetre pipe wrapped with black tape on the mezzanine level.
The bomb squad examined the pipe and noticed a white substance inside, and had a robot remove it to another location.
Trains continued running through the station during the incident, but did not stop. The station was reopened to the public at around 11:30 p.m. after police confirmed that the object wasn't explosive.
On Tuesday morning, Transit Police confirmed the object was a metal pipe wrapped with electrical tape with a wooden dowel inside.
The incident was the latest in a series of bomb scares to shut down transit stations in Metro Vancouver after a passenger spotted a crudely made explosive device on the SkyTrain tracks near the Scott Road Station in Surrey on Friday afternoon.
A bomb squad was also called out to a home in Delta, B.C., on Monday afternoon after a suspicious package was found. Police eventually detonated that package, and said they are certain the item was explosive, but they were still trying to determine who left it and why.
