The police department announced the closure of Pacific Central Station on Tuesday afternoon, saying only that it was due to a "suspicious package."
A news release warned of travel delays at the station, which also serves as a stop for Greyhound buses and U.S.-bound Amtrak trains, and surrounding streets were closed.
More than two hours later, the police announced the situation had been resolved and the station would re-open.
The police department said on its Twitter account that the suspicious packages turned out to be bags containing camping gear.
The bags were X-rayed and contained a fuel source, the department said.
