The station, located at 65 Cahill St. in San Jose, was evacuated shortly before 2:30 p.m. after authorities received a report of a bomb threat, Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn said.

The station was reopened shortly before 3:20 p.m. after authorities determined there was no threat, San Jose police Officer Jermaine Thomas said.

The evacuation caused the stoppage of trains between the Tamien and Santa Clara stations, but service has since resumed, according to Dunn.
