By From page A4 | July 26, 2014

OAKLAND — A San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit train station is back open after a reported bomb threat forced its closure and caused major delays throughout the system during the morning commute.

BART spokesman Jim Allison says that the Coliseum Station in east Oakland reopened around 9 a.m. Friday after police and bomb sniffing dogs did not find a bomb.

The station was closed down and evacuated for about an hour after a 911 caller reported hearing about a bomb threat around 7:40 a.m. The closure stranded hundreds of commuters.
